I have had a cough for about 12 weeks, After 4 lots of antibiotics (Believed Sinusitis) the 5th Doc i have seen sent me for a chest xray (all clear) and did a peak flow test (Scored 310 - For my age should be 440 - 29yr F). I was referred to an Asthma nurse who believes I have Asthma. I was prescribed Symbicort.
I Have a terrible hacking cough first thing in the morning (I score 260) and then the coughing gets worse again in the evening (I score 310). My question is - is this cough really caused by Asthma? - I don't know anyone with Asthma to ask? (I am seeing the nurse again Tuesday so will ask then)
Also should i be seeing an improvement by now on Symbicort?
Any Advice is truly appreciated as starting to worry there is something else going on.
Thanks in advance
