Is this normal?
Mar 22, 2009
Asthma's been out of whack the past 2 weeks. Went to docs Monday and they gave me a Z-pack and Medrol pack. Told me to also continue doing Albuterol in nebulizer 3 x's a day and continue my daily meds (Symbicort, Nasonex, Zyrtec & Aciphex). Then Wednesday I had a really bad attack where not only my upper chest was tight and constricted, causing wheezing, but my sides near my belly button started squeezing like crazy with the pain shooting up my back. (It felt kind of like a charlie horse on top of regular asthma symptoms). Took Albuterol in nebulizer & Symbicort afternoon puffs. The pain & gasps subsided after a while. But I was very weak, tight and drained after that. Went to work the rest of the week, not totally with it. A few people told me my eyes looked glassy and I should have stayed home. I've taken so many sick days already, I didn't want to keep adding it up. But it's 5 days later and I'm still very sore, the SOB comes and goes. My sides and back are still sore as well and I still feel very weak and achy. I took my nebulizer with Albuterol and Pulmicort about 2 hours ago. Felt a little better and was up around the house. Now the chest tightness, lower abdomen aches and body weakness are all back.

Is this normal? Why am I not feeling better? I don't know what to do and I'm getting so frustrated being sick!! I just want to feel like myself again : ( Please help....
