I need advice

I have been here before, I have been sick for about five years now. First I was told that I have copd, then I finally got to see a specialist and was told no I have brittle asthma. That was about two years ago, now he says that he does not know what is wrong and that I am the only person in about 15 years that he has seen that the medicine is not helping. He always goes back to allergies. I mean, I take seretide,theo-dur,singular,pred,and airomir. But if I go fast around a corner or up stairs, or laugh too hard or walk too far, I get winded,dizzy, see stars,cough, not to mention that I have not had a good night sleep in about five years, without a couple beers. any thoughts????? I am starting to think that I am going nuts!

Hi Rusco

Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time and you're definatley not going nuts, sometimes asthma can be difficult to diagnose due to the symptoms resembling other illnesses, but just out of interest does asthma medication help you? also what are you allergic to? I don't have any allergies which trigger my asthma which I'm told is pretty rare! either way if you need to talk feel free to pm me.



thats rough rusco, maybe it might be time to seek a second opinion.

contrary to popular belief, not all asthmatics have allergies, i dont have any at all yet i get a good kicking if i do some stuff too hard. My main triggers are cold excersise and people smoking around me, but some others do it as well, like when its muggy outside!

your not going mad, do you suffer from acid reflux? That could be a contributing factor
