Looking for some Advice re my husband!
18-24 months ago my hubbie started getting quite bad hay fever, then he had two chest infection one after the other, and he was quite wheezy,
his peak flow was around 350 so the doctor turned round and said you have asthma, we didn't belive this as whenever we wasn't a home he was fine, so we decided to rehome the rabbits and the rats and guess what all his symptoms went away, no more coughing, no more wheezy, no mre tight chested ect. he hasn't used a inhaler in a year, he takes allergy everyday in the summer but not everyday in winter,
he can do his fitness test, walk to work ect without taken a inhaler or getting any symptoms, and he been fine for a whole year, even in summer he was fine. so we went back to doctor yesterday and he done his peak flow but it was only 450, so 25% less than what a man of 29 and height should be getting and he also done a •Spirometry and even the nurse turned round to him and said your been weak a women could get betta than him, which is true he wasn't really trying yesterday when doing the test, so the test came back low, said he has lungs of a 67yr man!
but now because he been down graded for 18months it has to go to a medical board and they will see that his peak flow is low, they wont see that its not affecting him at all!
how can I get him to practice his peak flow so he can get it betta?
Now I have quite bad asthma I cant go a day without takin my blue inhaler, even walking to the shop or hovering im out of breath, and I smoke 10-15 aday, and my peak flow is around 450-500, so my peak flow is better than my none smoking husbands and he has never smoked in his life, and I smoke out side!
now im thinking it could be allergy Asthma and if it is then fine, but how do we get his peak flow up, he refusing to take a inhaler because as he puts he doesn't need it, he not feeling out of breath
yesterday we done a test when we got home , he took the peak flow and got 450 then he took my blue inhaler and we waited 20min like he did 18months ago a the doctors then re took the peak flow and his peak flow was still 450 so it hadn't changed where as it should if he had taken a inhaler!
its all very confusing, is it asthma or isn't?
