Hi I have posted on here a few times now and now I am so at the end of my tether with what to do my 11 year old daughter suffers with what I would call quite bad asthma she is at home more than at school she is always at the doctors being prescribed more and more steroids the speacialist tells me ""well she is getting better because we have had less hospitalisations"" well yes she has but she at the docs more and more being prescribed medication, she hasn't had a regular peakflow in I don't know how long ranging from 100 to 250 in a single day I am up most the time through the night with her i can hear her wheezing in my room she is coughing to the point of gagging and can't barely speak and yet by the morning after a rough night like last night she is completely clear chested but so worn out that it isn't fair to send her to school so tired and drained she always looks ill and now the doctor I saw today looks at me as though I am a bad mother for not admitting her to hospital but I have been dealing with this for so long now that I know how to deal with her at home and monitor her and even when I have took her into hospital they do exactly as I do at home I have a nebuliser here aswell with the treatment and when I get there they also tell me that there are so many coughs and colds on the wards that she is better off at home as they know us by first name basis now. I have all anti allergen bedding hoover mattress all the time boil wash bedding covers and blankets. We have had blood tests done all came back clear which i was gutted as it took me a year to get them as she is needle phobic so that was fun I can tell you then to be told all results are clear I wanted to scream what the hell is causing this something must be bloody wrong surely. My poor girl bless her is so down now she has had enough. Please tell me I am not the only one or that someone knows a magic cure I can't let this win I have almost lost her twice and I am not prepared to lose her .
