I have only just had my condition explained after visiting my Health Center for nearly two years and having the annual check up. I am a healthy female, never smoked but suffer from the seasonal pollen and occasional wheeze. Had a chest infection last year and was checked out by the nurse who didn't explain what the test was for. This year I have noticed that sometimes I feel short of breath and tired and have used the inhalers and felt relief. I can only think that 7 years of working in an office environment with two chain smokers can have caused this condition. Does anyone else have a similar story?
