Hello everyone, my son is 10 yrs old and has been diagnosed with asthma for 5yrs. In the last 6 months his asthma has gotten worse. He was on an accuhaler seretide 250 but it had to be lowered to a 100 seretide accuhaler due to side effects. He was also on an Intal inhaler but this has now been changed to atrovent as well.
My son only complains of chest pain and very rarely has a cough or wheeze but i was at the hospital yesterday with him and they now want to run further tests due to the fact that they now think his asthma symptoms could be masking an underlying problem. Im left feeling very worried and just wanting to know if this has happened to anyone else? please reply one very worried mother.
