Hello, my name is Christine and I am a new member. I was diagnosed
with asthma when I was about 10 years old, but I had known that
something was wrong way before finally being diagnosed (if this
makes sense).

For the past 5 days I have been having difficulties with my asthma.
It seems like within 2hrs of taking my meds my asthma flares up. Eg:
I take my Symbicort at 9am and at 9pm everyday. Lately it seems that
within 2hrs of taking the Symbicort I feel very twitchy and my
asthma flares up and I start having a hard time breathing and need
my rescue inhaler. So when I take my rescue inhaler (Bricanyl) and
my asthma finally gets under control, 2hrs later it feels like my
asthma is flaring up again.

It takes me a while to get comfortable at night because of my asthma
lately and I go through coughing fits, and in the morning too. I
don't understand why my asthma is so up and down lately. I'm on the
current medications:

- Symbicort 200/6
- Bricanyl
- Rhincort Aqua: for my chronic sinusitis

I have tried taking Advair and I seem to be too sensitive to it, I end up having an asthma attack after taking it. I have been on Symbicort for about a year now. In the beginning I was doing really well.. and now I'm not sure what is going on.

I can't take the MDI meds because my lungs are too sensitive I take it and would cough right away even using a spacer.

I'm not sure if it is the change in season or what. Allergey wise, everything environmental.. Eg: mold, dust, mildew, ragweed, pollen, trees, grass, dust mites, smoke.. etc I have a lot of triggers.. strong scents.. weather changes.. etc.

I called and booked an appointment with my doctor for Monday
morning. Any questions and comments are welcome. Thank you for

Christine :rolleyes:
