My son (aged 11) seems to have spells of a bad cough at night and wheezing - sometimes they last for a couple of days and sometimes just that night. I am beginning to wonder whether it is asthma or not. He does suffer quite badly from hayfever and had mild pneumonia about 4 months ago. He was looked at then by the GP but he didn't mention asthma - does anybody know whether he would have been able to tell if my son had asthma or would the pneumonia have covered it up.
Am starting to wonder whether I should take him to the GP to get him checked out but I don't want to waste anybody's time.
Grateful for your thoughts.
