I did post a similar message to this a few days ago but got no reply so am hoping I'll be luckier this time. I'll try to make it briefer and clearer.
I was diagnosed with Asthma this summer after having problems for about a year.
I kept getting worse and the medication just wasn't working. Finally, my GP prescribed 16 puffs of Qvar 50 and 2 of Seretide 50 daily. It has worked amazingly. What I'm confused about is that he expressed doubts that it was asthma.
He sent me for a chest xray and I shall have a breathing test next week. I asked him what else it could be. He said maybe I just cough a lot, some women do! But I've got so much better. I did have to stop all medicine because I became dehydrated though.
Any comments are most welcome. I'm not complaining only worrying that if I do have asthma he may not treat me if I have a problem in future.
Thanks in advance, :)) Louisa
