My name is MaryM. I've was dignosed with asthma as a 7 year old child but from the age of 14 the asthma stopped and I hadn't had any attacks for years Then at the age of 40 I was admitted to hospital with suspected heart attack I was finally diagnosed with unstable Angina and a return of asthma. I recently had some more tests done on my heart because of this unexplained shortness of breath. The heart specialist done a bunch of tests and also referred me to the Lung function clinic. I was diagnosed with a heart the is working above 54% but I have been discharged from the cardiology clinic. But I haven't been discharged from the Lung function clinic as I have been diagnosed with Brittle Asthma. Has anyone heard of this form of asthma? and so far we still haven't found the best medicine to help me. The speed and the severity of these attacks are really worrying and frightening I needed help two times between Monday and Friday. I am on steroids again this is the third lot of steroids in the last eight weeks plus two inhalers
I would be most grateful if there is anyone who could shed some light on this for me as you don't get enough time to speak to a doctor and ask the questions that worry's you these days.
Thank you for reading this post.
