Asthma during Pregnancy
Hi,

Please can someone help me. I suffer from asthma and for the past fews days my chest has been very heavy. I am 13 weeks pregnant, went to the gynae yesterday and he gave me a syrup that to take. He says that it would clear my chest but it doesn't seem to be helping. Can someone give me advise on this urgently.

Thanks

Have you tried an inhaler or nebuliser? The best person to consult would be the doctor who normally treats your asthma, presumably your GP.
