I am writing on here because my daughter has been told by her doctor that she has asthma. Ever since September, after she had the flu she has been suffering from a tight chest and fatigue. She has had numerous days off school, she is 15 and Year 11 (an important year). She has been to the doctor on many occasions and has been prescribed a brown(morning and evening) and blue inhaler (when necessary). These done seem to work. Every time she has had to see the doctor she suffered from a tight chest (it feels like her chest is knotted) and she wants to sleep. The doctor has prescribed steroids for 3 days, 2 lots so far. This morning she could not go to school complaining of a tight chest and has slept all morning and wants to see the doctor again. At my doctors, you need to ring up and they will ring within 2 hours and listen to the symptoms and whether to see the doctor again. It is a worrying time for me. The next time I see the doctor I am going to ask to to take this further and have investigations but not sure how to go about this. Does anyone know what I should ask, either a blood test, x-ray or whatever it takes to help alleviate her problems. Many thanks.
