I have a resp. consultant. he isn't convinced what's going on for me is asthma - he's putting things down to reflux, i improved after starting on tablets for it although haven't had much luck after that. i'm still symptomatic, tightness, coughing, shortness of breath, ect. I respond to inhalers and things, and I've had countless hospital admissions. I've had a negative mannitol test done, and my lung function tests are normal, but i've read singing and sports can give normal readings in asthmatics, ive been singing since i could talk and dancing since i was 3. I respond well to asthma treatments, though - i've been on a lot of burst courses of pred and i seem to improve a lot within a couple of days and my peak flows seem to stay stable. is it possible to be asthmatic without the airway sensitivity? im frustrated with the whole situation.
