I was wondering how many people have been diagnosed as asthmatic as a child but never wheezed then as you got older consultants and gps have decided it is hyperventilation as no wheeze.
I find it really frustrating as both consultant and GP say it is not asthma but hyperventilation but continue getting me doing peak flow meter twice daily and taking asthma medication.
When you research hyperventilation the treatment is different to asthma. It really winds me up.
I got informed at my last appointment that my consultant was leaving so I am hopeful a new person might see some sense.
I am sat on red inhaler, brown inhaler, blue inhaler, blue nebules, singular, cetirizine, nasal inhaler, eye drops, esomprezole, peptac, hrt and hydrocortisone.
Since adding hydrocortisone instead of prednisolone I have gained lower back pain, legs pain, stomach pain and sleepiness. Not impressed. Waiting to see endocrine for this.
And a new respiratory consultant in January.
Who else are told it not asthma as no wheeze or oxygen change it is hyperventilation?
