I'm not looking for a diagnosis or anything, I'm just wondering. I was told I had asthma when I was seven because I had a cough at night. I was only given a brown inhaler not a blue one but in the end my GP prescribed a blue one because my school nurse said if yopu had asthma the school needed a blue inhaler for you. I can't really remember what happened in between but by the time I was ten I was using the blue inhaler before sports and if I ever felt breathless.
My parents have always been unwilling to say that I have asthma because it has only ever been mild. I have been to hospital with quite a few attacks, but sometimes I don't wheeze, so that made me think maybe I'm wrong. I take my blue inhaler when I feel breathless, but I'm not sure anymore whether that's actually my asthma or maybe I'm just really unfit. I used to be a club swimmer though so I was used to swimming two hours a night 6 days a week. I'm just a bit confused as to how I know whether it is actually asthma or not?
I'm sorry because I expect this is really rambling and long and if there is anything I have missed out I am happy to tell you
