I've ALWAYS had a blocked or runny nose. Always! I can always be relied upon to have tissues for others to use. Asthma didn't come up until I was almost 40.

Can you see a different doctor? One who is more interested in Asthma?

Sorry can't be much more help.

Is it reflux? I only saying as had chest pain etc and have acid reflux with asthma not sure which came first. Can have cough chest pain etc like you described.


Do you find your breathing fluctuates quite a lot in a short space of time &

do you feel like you have a lump in your throat that is very difficult to clear?
