asthma getting worse as I get older

Hi,

I am new to the forum, my name is Laura , I am 24 and over the past few years my asthma has got worse and worse, having attacks more often.

My immune system is terrible, I am forever getting bad coughs/colds which sets off my asthma.

I am a dance and gymnastic coach, I love my job but this causes me to struggle sometimes.

Is there anything I can try, any diets or anything else that can help prevent this?

Or anyone I can see?

Iv seen my doctor so many times and tried lots a different inhalers the highest strengths, tablets, steroids you name it. Nothing seems to help.

Does anyone have any thoughts or advice? Would be most grateful!

Laura

    Hi Laura Jane.

    I have made a couple of postings on the forum that can possibly be of assistance.

  • Hi Laura sorry you're so unwell :(

    Maybe you should copy and paste your original post to the medical subforum as you might get more specific advice there. Also have you called the Asthma UK helpline on 0800 121 62 44? When you call that you get through to asthma nurses who are a marvellous help, I know this from having called them myself a few times.

    Has your doctor refered you to a hospital specialist? If your asthma is not well controlled it sounds like you need further help.

    But definitely give the helpline a call. Good luck.

    Edited to add that I see you've already posted this in the medical subforum. Good. Please do consider calling the helpine. FWIW my own asthma is worsening too and you have my sympathy.
