I had asthma diagnosed at age 1 and spent most of my childhood wheezing with a few trips to A&E for nebulizer treatment, but have never had a stay in hospital due to my asthma. My asthma seemed to slowly subside and didn't plague me very much during my teens- only a few bouts of bad asthma attacks when I had flu and colds. Then when I was 21 my asthma got worse- I was living in slightly cold accomodation and very stressed and was experiencing symptoms every day and a tutor asked if I was a chain smoker because I was making so much noise! After about 6 months this subsided again for a year and got a little bit worse again this year (2 years later), I also had an asthmatic reaction to a general anaesthetic in January.
Has anyone else had bouts of asthma like this?
Also I don't understand some of the abbreviations on this site! could anyone fill me in?
