I have been struggling for last 3 years with infections and asthma playing me up. had numerous courses of steroids and antibiotics. this month though i have been a bit worse then usual and have actually wheezed and had my inhalers changed. how long do you have to suffer before you are sent to hospital to see a specialist who's deals just with asthma. i no iam not half as bad as some of you people on hear and i do feel a bit bad for wanting to go to hospital but iam getting am little fed up now and when i have mentioned it to docs they say iam not bad enough to be sent. but i have been on tabs for the last 3 years on and off and all these steroids can not been doing me any good. please don't think iam been rude i just need a little help.
