Tight chest, as if I'm being strangled, hard to breathe, cough...
-it was thought I had asthma, but it is now thought perhaps not, perhaps its allergies.
I have seen bits about xolair on the web, and it seems to say the allergies it could possibly help include dustmites, mould, cockroaches and pets.
But I know the triggers for me are people's cigarettes, paint and chemical fumes/smells, cold air, certain cleaning products, to name but a few.
I don't know why I'm so upset as my chest x ray was all clear & I don't have copd and I should be happy, but I'm just scared and worried now:
Scared the docs will now take away my inhalers (which are of limited help), and then how will I be able to breathe with the tightness & discomfort etc?
Scared I will not get a 2nd opinion by anothe chest consultant, and then what?
Scared they'll say it isn't allergies at all, but then what?
Scared xolair isn't appropriate for me, but then what?
The inhalers I'm on (serevent, clenil, ventolin) don't stop me feeling rough after I've been exposed to my triggers, but what I do know is that pets do not make me feel bad in any way whatsoever.
Really not sure what to think, except all this is going round in my head.
open to your thoughts. thank you.
