I was diagnosed with Asthma 3 years ago (in my early 50's) with no spirometry test just a nurse looking at me when I was breathless. Couple of winters proved difficult and have had nebulisers to get me through them. 3 years on, a change of doctor, a chest x-ray that said everything was ok and a spirometry test that said everything was normal (although I was not given the real test results) but cannot breath properly, can't exercise, depression (which is being treated) but I seem stuck in this virtual nobody knows what is wrong with me. Have given up the ciggies for the last 4 weeks now but I seem no better at all. Any suggestions as to what I do next? Although a nice man my new GP just said "does it really matter what the diagnosis is - do you need it for insurance purposes!!!" I replied that I need it for me and my family!!!
