Hi being new to asthma ( Dec 15 age 51) it was a shock although I've had years of chest infections coughs,colds but just put it down to the winter blues and pollen. It's only when after a bad few weeks and sleepness nights coughing wheezing and a new gp I was told I have asthma. The last 6 or so weeks have been hard but I'm on. New inhaler so fingers crossed. I'm a person who hates going to the Drs and when I go only tell half wants wrong ( I think I can heal myself) I guess I think I'm being a pain. Now I've realised I'm not a pain and I need to see the dr if my asthma symptoms are getting worse at the earliest point . Thanks again for the support
