I was diagnosed about a week ago after a bout of coughing, tightness in my chest and dizzy spells. I have suffered the same kind of bouts for the last two years but this is the first time asthma was mentioned. Previous times it was diagnosed as bronchitis or viral respiratory infection. I was prescribed ventolin and clenil and started feeling better almost instantly and now feel better than I have for years.
I am just confused about why it took so long to diagnose or is it possible the diagnosis is still wrong? I take daily doses of avamys and fexofenadine for my allergiesand end up on prednisolone about twice a year. Could this have masked the symptoms?
