Over the last three years I have developed, in order:
September 07 I was diagnosed with reflux which is being treated with Omeprazole
April 08 I had a FESS to clear my sinuses which the doctor said were in a dire state
Ultimately September 08 I was diagnosed with late onset asthma after a lung cancer scare and we have now progressed to Seretide & Montelukast.
My feeling is that I am continually degenerating and my breathing is now worse than it was 12 months ago, however I swim 1800m a week and go to the gym twice a week as well and I can't even get a 'poor' Balke rating, about 27.5 is my norm.
The current state of affairs is that no one seems too bothered about the reflux, I see an ENT man for my sinuses and a chest man for my asthma
I suppose there are two questions here:
1. Is this normal course of events with late onset asthma, i.e. the degenerative effect or do I have something else?
2. Is there anyone in the medical profession that takes a holistic view of the three symptoms, which from my research appear to be connected in some way and is there anyway I can get this looked at from a holistic point of view?
