I am looking for comments or suggestions from someone. The readings of my peak flow test are usually 320-420. My yellow zone starts from 340. When I had an asthma attack in April and a month later, my readings dropped to 350-380 and in no way would they rise. These low readings really did not affect me and I just thought that they will come back to their original level as days passed but my assumptions were not right. The peak flow readings remained low. A month later, the readings started wavering from a low of 30 to a high of 420 and I started feeling the symptoms by mid-June with a tightening of the chest and more breathlessness, so I started taking Prednisone. Being a GERD victim, I also doubled the Prilosec and magnesium doses. I tapered the dose of Prednisone over a period of ten days and in spite of this, the peak flow readings seemed to have decreased by 90 points within two days of stopping Prednisone. I was asked to start Prednisone all over again. I went to consult my regular doctor who prescribed a calcium channel blocker Blood Pressure medication as he said that my BP was high. I know my BP rises when I have an attack of asthma. My doctor assumed that the advantageous side effects would help to relax my muscles and in the bargain improve my peak flow readings, but it did not work. He has given me an antibiotic, but the readings are the same unwilling to budge from 330-380. My CXR was normal too. I am worried that I will soon be hospitalized like the last time when the same thing happened and I was really so very sick then. I am still taking all my medication. Any inputs for this, anyone?
