I have been struggling for almost 6 years now since having pneumonia.Every winter (late September to April) with reoccurring chest infections and a horrific cough. I'm unable to go outside during these months without coughing constantly! I have become accustomed to staying indoors. I was referred to a respiratory consultant in February who confirmed allergic asthma (grade 3 allergy to grass and tree pollen) I don't understand how this would work with my winter problems (I do get hay fever though)
I am currently taking 10mg montelukast, Spiriva respiratory 2.5 micro gram 2 puffs twice daily, Symbicort 200 2 puffs once a day and ventolin 2 puffs twice a day then as required.
I have also tried clenil, fostair, seretide and beclonaise? Sp?
My symptoms don't seem to be resolving but my lung function is too good to be considered for xolair.
Has anyone had similar problems? Any help and advice greatly received
