anyway, i talked to the CNP at the last visit, and she said that she cant help me until i get a PFT > this asthma flare up has been going on for the past two weeks the good news is, the attacks are getting fewer and farther between, but the attacks themselves are getting worse i was at another doctors when i was 13 and the other doctor took my history (i had an aunt that had it but she died of an attack when i was 18) and i have allergies....so he was like listening to my lungs (he didnt hear anything) and i started coughing really bad, and he was like"how long have you done that for?" and i said "for like three years, ever since i had pneumonia." long story short, the other doctor diagnosed me as asthmatic.. a few months went by and i went back to the doctor and asked how i got asthma, and the doctor was like " i looked at the x-rays from when you had pneumonia, and it looked really severe. something like that can cause you to get asthma because of the link scientists found between walking pneumonia and asthma." i was like " oh ok thanks." well anyway, i was diagnosed, but that was before everything was standardized, and i guess it got lost in the transfer of data from written records to electronic records and its not like i can just go back there and ask that doctor, cause he retired... either that or he died and i cant take this asthma crap anymore two weeks of this crap my mom is hell bent on it being anxiety(i lived with family friends back then) and i dont have a car so i cant go anywhere and the medics in my district are total assholes so thats out of the running im so confused whos right? should i try to ask a different CNP? thanks for putting up with this REALLY long post :/
