Asthmatic Bronchitis

Still reeling from a bad cough, 2 days ago I started developing asthma problems. Nothing helped.

So this morning I headed into the doctor and found out I have asthmatic bronchitis and an infection. I am now on an antibiotic and prednisone (a steroid).

The doctor told me that she’s glad I came in. The virus started 10 days or so ago and this past Monday I thought I was getting better until Tuesday morning when I got hit again.

Prednisone helps “cure” inflammation problems and is used for many maladies including but not limited to asthma, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. There are people who get side effects from taking it such as insomnia, weight gain, depression, etc.  I have never experienced any side effects from taking it.  It is normally only given for very short durations of time.

Hopefully, within the next couple of days I’ll get back to my usual self.
