I was diagnosed with "mild persistent asthma" this past April and am still having symptoms almost every day. I have improved since April, but now generally it's just tightness/breathlessness and productive coughing that lasts for about an hour every morning. I generally have no issue sleeping (only wake up about one night a month with symptoms).
I'm 75inches, 144 pounds and my Peak Flow Average is 450. My best has been 510 and my lowest has been 430.
I guess I'm feeling defeated it has been so long and have some general questions:
1. Based on what I have said does it sound like I have severe or moderate asthma, rather than mild persistent (which my specialist claims)?
2. Is it normal I am still experiencing symptoms pretty much daily? Does it mean my asthma is uncontrolled or is this just going to be the rest of my life?
3. Is it normal for it to take this long (5 months) for asthma to be controlled?
I really appreciate any and all feedback.
