After years of wheezing and then struggling to breath I was told I had Asthma, but the inhalers had little effect. I moved doctors and when I asked about a program for my Asthma I was sent to the practice's nurse. I had several tests and then more tests a couple of months later, I had to blow in to a tube and she read the readings, I was given a second brown inhaler which helped a little bit but it didn't do much. My night wheezing etc continued as did the phlegm day in day out. But it was another nurse who looked at my notes during a routine visit for a flu jab who said how are you coping with your COPD? What I said. I have asthma, no you don't on these results and your history you clearly have COPD. I'm confused at what to do now, one nurse said nothing yet the other was convinced i have COPD, as do I I might add. Explains everything.
