What kind of tablets are you taking and what dose ?
Anyway with grade 3 asthma tablets only help not cure
So expect some residual pain and wheezing
Good Luck

Hi,thank you for your question to question doctors.com
If I were you I would go back to the doctor for follow up ad the specialist will help you figure out the degree of narrowing in your airway by doing a simple test.
It needs further treatment with medications and cough training as well as breathing exercises are good.

Hi
i still feel that there is some amount of bronchospasm that is present.
In my opinion,you need to take bronchodilators for few more days.
thanks

HI
PERSISTENT PAIN AND WHEEZING IS SUGGESTIVE OF YOUR WIND PIPE STILL BEING IN A BIT OF SPASM.
NEBULISERS AND STEAM INHALATION WITH ROTAHALERS WILL BE IMMENSELY HELPFUL.

hello there
chest xray won’t show any abnormalities when you have bronchospasm. get spirometry done to assess the lung functioning capacity.
ct chest will help rule out other abnormalities.
