I don't know where to post this cuz am new to this!
I just found out that I have asthma yesterday. I always am in general well, and since my chest is being funny and when breathing its not normal as I used to. I never had this condition until went to doctor about this.
I explained how i feel in my chest when breathing in - feeling a bit tightness, feeling funny and thought i would have an infection there. He asked if my breathing is wheezing or not, I told him i cant hear it because i am deaf. He checked on my blood pressure on my finger and ears, listening to my lungs. He had me blow on spirometery thingy, at first it was at over 200 second was under 300 and last one just around 300. Last time I had this was at 433 was years ago. He also said there is no signs of infections, and I was godsmacked! I didn't expect this to come out like this after back from Holliday last week, had a long thinking yesterday and think it was to do with the bites I had last week triggering this?
Is 200-300 was reading according to spirometery low? What is normal reading for healthy person without asthma?
So I was given a preventer and reliver and told to take 2 puffs of preventer twice a day and take 2 puffs of reliver when needed. I don't know what to do with them.
I don't know if it's for a long term or not.
How long should I see the doctor next?
