Hi everyone. Gosh I'm confused/worried.....maybe even scared?
I'll try and keep this short...I was very poorly with my chest in January/February, doc kept saying he thought it was asthma or bronchitis...but I also needed treatment for chest infections...I didn't improve until we tried clenil along with ventolin.....fast forward to covid 19, I haven't yet had diagnostics to prove asthma or bronchitis, I did fit in a CT scan before lockdown....I came home from work mid March ( when things got serious and government said practice social distancing strictly if you have chronic asthma) and haven't been back, assuming I had chronic asthma, and decided that strict social distancing meant not working with very small children.....asthma nurse agreed and gp agreed at this point.....so, CT results back today, no Bronchiectasis, didn't know that's what the doc was looking for....so, I've spoken at length to the doc today....he now says, I probably have adult onset asthma, which is not chronic asthma?? And, since there is a small cyst on my CT scan(nothing to worry about apparently) but nothing else such as Bronchiectasis, then I should go to work and practice normal social distancing.....I mean, obviously its good that my CT scan shows nothing as such, but why is adult onset asthma not as serious as chronic asthma? I mean, I've only just got the flippin thing under control with two puffs of ventolin followed by 3 puffs of clenil, twice a day......and now I have to face the super spreaders that are my usual daily charges (4 and 5 year olds)....I'm frankly baffled by all this, I do fit the description of a candidate for adult onset asthma, but I'm uncertain about risking the germs? I don't understand how having adult onset asthma makes me less vulnerable than having chronic asthma?........🤔
