So I went to the ER this evening. I had been experiencing more weezing but this time it lasted 2 days. I didnt want to use my inhaler bc the weezing seemed small mostly. I thought to myself, "What kinda asthma lasts 2 days anyway?" So after 2 days of non stop focusing on this small amount of weezing, I gave in and went to the ER for the 500th time in my life (probably). They were the ones that had prescribed me this scary inhaler that causes so much nervousness, albuterol. My reg doc whome I've only seen once says she thinks I dont have asthma but sorta an sinus related allergy. Like nasal drainage I guess getting into my lungs or something. Idk. So she prescribed me nasonex. I have yet to use it either but I'm willing to if it would mean that I wouldnt have to use this med I was prescribed tonight in the ER...... Prednisone.
So its a steroid. The doc said it wouldnt make me nervous but the nurse said she used it and it gave her alot of energy. Sounds like something that would turn strait to nervousness for me! And I'm TERRIFIED of meds. I have that pharmaphobiea thing. Just so scared of an allergic reaction to a med that would kill me. Or even just feeling strange like my lungs feeling weird or HAVING ALOT OF ENERGY. Ugh!
So can anyone tell me anything about this drug? Anyone use it and it make them nervous? Horror stories? Good stories?
Since its light weezing and the med would only be for 4 days anyway, couldnt I just use the inhaler? Ok so you cant medically tell me that. Just what do you think? Can anyone tell me about their experience on this med???
