I have been recently diagnosed with cough variant asthma and wanted to know how others sufferers deal with it. I complained about a cough for 7 months and multiple visit to gp before being referred to a chest Specialist (after I insisted to be referred to) who diagnosed it. I'm a bit down really as don't seem to go anywhere: I was started on QVar 100+ Ventolin which didn't help, changed to Seretide 250+ ventolin which makes it slighty better, but had to have since 2 courses of prednisolone for 5 days. I'm getting allergic reactions to more and more things ( last one was a full body rash, and unwellness after pneumovac vaccine). I'm worrying now all the time about my breath, and the damage this cough is doing to my lungs. I just started regular cetirizine which seems to help a bit. I would like to see if there are other people in similar situation. Thank you for reading this.
