well, I think my asthma coughing and shortness of breath may finally be improving. I am still using my rescue inhaler, but not as frequently. I’m not sleeping as well with the Breo switch. And, the prednisone is still making me crazy and way more sensitive and emotional (the family is dealing with it pretty well).
My question today is about acute/heartburn-like pain in my right upper back. Felt like intense heartburn (I do take Prilosec twice a day). I took to tums before bed, the pain woke me last night, back to sleep. Woke at six, used restroom. Woke at seven, same intense upper right back pain (behind shoulder blade), rolled over- no relief, fell asleep, woke up still hurting, sat up, still hurting. So, I got up- hurts when I stand or sit. I took a.m. Prilosec, pain still there. Is this all just annoying heartburn or does Breo have side effects of cardiac issues or gall bladder or anything else? Due to prednisone, I may be a little more paranoid. But, so many new meds, I don’t want to ignore symptoms that I shouldn’t
Any ideas or experience with this? Sorry for the paranoia- it s probably just heartburn. Going to try to eat now, see if that helps. Thanks for listening.
