    HI @sarahwp66 - & welcome. I'm sorry you're suffering with asthma & COPD. Is there another GP in your practice that you could see for their opinion to see what may help? If not, could you ask to see one of the nurses there to get your severe asthma evaluated, & receive the help you need?

    Hello there @sarahwp66 and welcome, thanks for reaching out, I'm sorry to hear about the trouble you're having. To help our members find your post more easily, I've edited the title slightly, and moved it over into our aids, adaptions and equipment category. 

    Can I check if you have an asthma nurse? 

    If it's helpful Asthma + Lung UK have information on Nebulisers, and there's a helpline you can contact for ongoing support too. 

    Let us know if we can help with anything further in the meantime :)
