I had an interesting difficult asthma clinic visit yesterday whereby my consultant said I now don't have asthma! He did clarify this by saying I have Inflammatory Airway Disease caused by repeated infections. He did say that the treatment was pretty much the same (I take Symbicort/Spiriva/Phylocontin and sometimes Pred) and as far as most people are concerned it IS asthma (he said he needed to label my condition as asthma so I get the right treatment). I'm still under his care but I do feel like I shouldn't be a part of this site anymore.
I have found this site to be very helpful though.
Has anyone else been told something similar?
I am still slightly confused as I do get tight chested when I encounter smoke, strong perfume and very high pollen counts so who knows, maybe I do still have the allergic part of asthma, just not as much as I used to.
