Hello, I'm wondering if any body has had similar experiences to me?
I don't wheeze when I get an asthma attack, I only wheeze when I have a chest infection...
I've had asthma all my life and as I child I was accused as ""using it as an excuse to get out of school"" because when I went to the doctors with shortness of breath and tight chest, they thought I was fibbing because when they listened to my chest it was relatively clear.
I'm asking this now because I had an attack (first one in ages) on Wednesday and I've just had too days of trying to convince the doctor that I need predisalone. I've seen two doctors and a nurse, all of them treated me very suspiciously and were reluctant to prescribe. It's only after my friend, who is a GP, demanded that they listen to me did they actually prescribe them.
Does anyone else experience this? Thanks
