    Hi Daryll, sounds a bit like asthma, which I have.

    I have been using inhalers for many years and that seems to do the trick.

    Hope it works out ok for you, you might need to tell your holiday insurance people of this ( if you have any although I guess they would exclude the condition )

    Take your EU Medical card, although not sure if it covers Canaries.

    Eeeeee....not good Daryll

    Smoker/Ex-smoker? (not necessarily I know.....I run the risk from vaping, but it's one of the main resons I quit smoking!)
    Hope it's only a mild version and doesn't cause too much grief in the long term

    The Canaries are Spanish territory so your EU card covers you for treatment in the state health care system but not the private sector, you need to ascertain the status of any medical facility you intend to use or risk a huge bill if you haven't taken out holiday insurance.
    Observe without judging what you see

    Thanks for that info, If possible definitely take private cover.

    And if getting treatment ASK FIRST if its private or EU funded.

    Friends have been ripped off like this in Spain.
