Hi, nearly 6 years ago (i was only about 8) i was taken to my local gp as when i excersiced i seemed to be getting very wheezy and coughing and then it felt like i had a huge sumo guy sat on my chest as my chest was so tight chested. When i went to my gp they gave me a ventolin easy breath inhaler, and said i have a cough when it comes to excercise. I went back shortly after and was labelled asthmatic. I have been to my Gp several times in this year (double figures) They seem to always say my chest is clear! I was given a peak flow meter to use everyday and i am supposed to get around 350 most! I get around 200 or less, I am now on Serevent, Becotide, Ventolin inhalers (the highest does) with a spacer and i still cant seem to take control of it! Every day i have pains in my chest, coughing fits, breathlessness and asthma attacks, and all my gp seems to do is pump me full of amoxilcillin and say i have a virus, i dont like to bother my hospital as i feel its a waste of time, i have had to take months out of school, and it is stopping me from doing most things. I even get breathless going up the stairs. I am only 13 and it is very distressing for me. Do you think that they could do more, i am very anxious and scared. These past few weeks i have had atleast 3 attacks a week! I dont know what to do! Please help! holly x
