My husband was diagnosed with asthma about 3 years ago. It's been a bit of a battle to get things under control, but on the whole, he's not too bad these days. However, it's the hayfever season, and being an allergy sufferer, he's been having a few problems recently.
For about the past month, he's been complaining about a ""knot"" in the middle of his chest. It comes and goes, but never entirely goes away. He takes omeprazole for reflux and has been wondering if it's being caused by a reflux flare-up. However, he hasn't been feeling particularly acidic and the sensation is present even when his asthma symptoms settle down.
Does anyone else experience this knotty sensation in the chest? It seems to respond to Ventolin, but keeps returning. He is reluctant to ask for steroid tablets, as he dislikes the side effects and the last time he thought he needed them, the doctor said he could control the flare-up with regular Ventolin shots!
Any advise would be most welcome
