Hello,
 
I have noticed recently that my asthma is worse at night and 1st thing in the morning is this common?  What is available to help at those times if any?  Does anyone else find certain times are worse for them than others?

Mine was worse at night due to my sleep apnea and GERD.

Do you have a nebulizer? It helps when I have problems and can't get to the doctor at that time for a treatment.

Do you have a rescue inhaler? They are very handy.

Hot showers are great for loosing the gunk.

I get shaky from mine, too. I'm usually buzzed for a couple of hours.

If your asthma is acute enough, it will be worse in the night. Because you are laying down. Talk to your pulmologist about preventive medications. I've gone into severe attacks in my sleep, just because I was laying down and my allergies.

i have been told by a specialist that it is NOT reccomended to use a nebuliser at home when you suffer problems with your asthma.apparently it's been found that instances of sudden death caused by asthma are higher when the sufferer used a nebuliser at home. ( i only know because i was planning to get one) also, because whenyou have to be hospitalised for asthma there is very little they can do other than a nebuliser and if you are already using one at home it can reduce its effectiveness..

hope this was some help!

My nebulizer is strictly for emergencies.
