Gals to hear life is getting better ! Hope the cough subsides quickly. Lots of love TAD xx

Hi tigershay, I am sorry your cough has come back...mine has too...I was given antihistamines, Montelukast and atrovent last Thursday but no improvement so now back on the higher dose is steroids...seem to go round in circles. I hope your chest pain is better and glad that you can ride your horse again. My middle daughter loves riding , one of her borrowed horses is on Ventolin poor soul.

Oh its a pain ...gp had to come last night after surgery as i couldnt speak as so breathless tight chest. Shes ringing chest consultant today as normally when i was "asthmatic" id have week steroids and up inhalers and be ok but he says ive not got asthma but pievious consultant says i have! Poor gp is in middle and im suffering needlessly fed up ...horses are the eye of our soul xxx

Do hope you get it sorted soon.You wouldent think a diagnose of asthma would be to hard,your poor GP must get frustrated,being piggy in the middle!

Glad you've enjoyed some time with your horse,& congrats with the loss of weight.Take care,xxx

Thank you . Im a bit fed up now but cant do anything till gp speaks to him re plan forward. Im in limbo till someone makes a decision !! How two consultants of same area can come up with different diagnosis is beyond me totally !! You can hear my chest whistling without stethescope xxx
