is it asthma??

My 5 year old son has not been well since last November. We have been back and forth to the doctor and the only response I get is it is a viral infection. His breathing is very wheezy and he has a constant chesty cough, however my doctor says his chest is clear?? He has had several colds in this period and numerous days off school. I again went to see the doctor who said it may be asthma but cannot be diagnosed until he is either 7 or has had 6 viral infections in a year?? I am convinced he may have a mild form of asthma as my mum, brother and sister all have it. Can anybody please give me some advice as I am really worried that he needs treatment and isn't getting it.

Thank You

Stacey

  • Hi Stacey

    If the GP said it could be asthma, has he been given any kind of inhaler? When my then 5 year old (now 11) had a constant cough, they said it may be asthma but would only be able to tell if inhalers worked. they did. He has never wheezed and his chest is always clear. he has never had an asthma attack, but inhalers do help the cough and he does occasionally need them when swimming or doing pe.

    My 3 year old twins are also 'suspected' asthmatics. everyone is treating them asthmatics and have done since they were 10 months. apparently they won't get a diagnosis until they are able to use peak flow meters and have their lung function tested.

    Can I also say though that me (not asthmatics) and all my children have had what seems like a constant cold since november. as have lots of poeple i know. the gp and the asthma nurse have told me that loads of people are the same this year and there seems to be a very persistant virus aound

  • Hi,

    No they havent given him anything but calpol!! Its getting very frustrating as he is losing time off school and I am losing time off work. If they could justgive him something instead of constantly fobbing me off with calpol!!

  • Hi Stacey Maybe you could get your practice nurse to test your son for asthma by taking his peak flow and then make him jump about or run on the spot then try the peakflow again then give him some Ventolin and see if that makes his breathing easier If it does he could well have asthma I know the wheeziness and the cough are very annoying to listen to both at home and at school but they are very tiring for the child so hopefully you will have a better idea soon whether he has asthma or not and then you can start to treat it Hope your son is better soon and keep your chin up.

  • see another doctor, or ask for a referal, its you right to have another opinion.

  • RESEARCH OF ASTHMA ERADICATING MEDICINE

    ASTHMA ERADICATION HAS BEEN A PERSISTENT ISSUE OF DISCUSSION AMONG THE MEDICAL EXPERTS ALL OVER THE GLOBE, FOR THE PREVIOUS SEVERAL DECADES WITH COGNIZABLE SUCCESS CHRONOLOGICALLY BUT THE NET EFFECT OF MEDICATION REMAINS INCONCLUSIVE AS PER OBSERVATION OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION:-

    1. ASTHMA IS UNDER DIAGNOSED AND UNDER TREATED CREATING A SUBSTANTIAL BURDEN TO INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES AND POSSIBLY RESTRICTING INDIVIDUALS ACTIVITIES FOR A LIFE TIME.

    2.ASTHMA IS NOT JUST A OUBLIC HEALTH PROBLEM FOR HIGH INCOME COUNTRIES;IT OCCURS IN ALL COUNTRIES REGARDLESS OF LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENTS.

    3.ASTHMA DEATHS WILL INCREASE BY ALMOST 20% IN NEXT 10 YEARS ,IF URGENT ACTION IS NOT TAKEN.

    IN VIEW OF SAID EXPRESSION ,I FEEL PRIVILEGED TO ASSURE ASTHMA ERADICATION BY A HOMOEO BIO REMEDY EVOLVED BY ME IN THE YEAR 1958,WHICH HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY MAKING RECORDS OF CURE IN ALL THE CHILDRENS TREATED BY REMEDY FOR FULL LIFE TIME,COMPLETLY STOPPING ASTHMA'S RECURRENCES WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF MEDICATION.

    ''''''ERADICATE ASTHMA FROM WHOLE WORLD AND UPLIFT CHILD HEALTH

    THE OLD FICTION THAT ASTHMA IS AN UNCONQUERABLE HUMAN MALADY HAD ALTOGETHER BEEN ALTERED BY A SINGLE HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDY EVOLVED IN THE YEAR 1958 BY ME.IT HAS AMPLY PROVED THAT ALL THOSE CASES INFANTILE ASTHMA, CHRONIC BRONCHITIS AND BRONCHO PNEUMONIA GROUP RECURRENT COUGH DISEASES(EXCLUDING LUNGS-CACER)ARE CURABLE IF TREATED IN BETWEEN 0-11 YEARS AGE GROUP PATIENT THAT IS BEFORE PUBERTY.THOUSANDS OF CHILDERNS WHO HAVE BEEN CURED BY THIS REMEDY, HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT SUCH CURE ARE FIRST AND FINAL AND THAT IS FOR WHOLE LIFE, WITH NO RELAPSE IN FUTURE.

    SINCE THIS MEDICINE (HOMOEO & BIOCHEMIC)HAS BEEN ASSEMBLED ON THE ACTIVE PRINCIPAL OF ARISTROGENIC (SCIENCE OF RACIAL DEVELOPMENT )IT POSSESSES SUPERB RECONSTRUCTIVE WORTH ON THE PREGNENT WOMEN,FETAL AND NEONATAL BABIES;MAXIMALLY OUT WEIGHING ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL AND HAS A POWERFUL EFFECT ON ALL GRADES OF MALNUTRITION TOO.

    AS A HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDY IT IS FULLY FREE FROM ANY TOXIC SIDE EFFECT,EITHER DURING INSTANT OR REMOTE USE AND THERE WITH OUR DREAM OF CREATING ASTHMA FREE HUMAN RACE IN THIS WORLD CAN BE ESSENTIABLE BE ATTAINED.
