If your having problems it is always best to go get a bit of advice from your gp I was 17 when I got told I had asthma. If it is or it isnt sounds like you could do with an mot not good catching all the infections you seem to be getting. good luck and I hope it goes ok take care xx


Yes Lisa you can, I wasn't officially diagnosed with late onset Asthma until I was in my late forties. It does sound very much like Asthma, that's how I started,, repeated chest infections and coghs and colds that never went away. BUT, I'm not a Doctor and I couldn't tell you for sure, you should make an appointment to see your Doctor who will maybe refer you to your practice Asthma nurse for a diagnosis.
