Does anyone use an Inhaler whilst having FMD?

Hi everyone!

Thank you to you all regarding my queries regarding EOE - Eosinophilic Oesophagitis.

I've now been prescribed a Fluticosone Inhaler but in my case I don't inhale it but I breath it in and swallow it which puts a coating on my Eosophagus so as to enable me to swallow my food.

I shall also be having Allergy tests soon but I would like to know if anyone using an inhaler finds that it makes their symptoms flare up from time to time.

My spasms have occasionally flared up and I don't know if the steroid inhaler can interact with Baclofen.

My GP wishes me to try it for a few days more to see how I go.

Thanks everyone again.

Hi Kim 

I had to come off inhalers completely as they really affected my condition. I am very sensitive to many medications bow though. There is an interesting link I have just read on the this forum from a lady who replied to someone earlier regarding your condition and a link with vitamin b12 deficiency. 


Hi there!

Many thanks for your reply.

I'm relieved that I'm not the only one who's had side effects.

Do you have EOE or is it Asthma?



Hiya Kim!

I use Seretide 250 for bad asthma. Its ingredients are salmeterol/fluticasone propionate.

Every test was done regarding my symptoms and the last neurologist suggested it COULD be a build up of the ingredient. I went on a ventolin inhaler for about six months and my symptoms didn't lessen much, plus I was taking puffs loads in the day as it just wasn't controlling my asthma. 

I'm back on seretide and I have to say I do feel my symptoms have gotten a tad bit more frequent. 

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place eh!

Had lots of bloods taken last week to test for heavy metals and auto-immune disorder. 

Constantly investigating :(
