I started having breathing problems in the spring of 2015 - these revealed themselves when exercising - suddenly my lungs felt as if they were tiny and could not take in air. I also noticed I had a nasal drip - it would gush out of my nose if I bent down etc.
Just prior to all this I cleaned a lot of mould off my dining room ceiling - as it was artexed I could'nt just wipe it off - I used a kitchen brush and neglected to wear a mask.
I struggled until the summer until I went to a GP - I was out of breath a lot of the time. I was told it was asthma. Since then I have had ventolin,qvar,symbicort and fostair. I also use montelukast. They only thing that has helped me is prednisolone - 40mg a day for 8 days and I am good for four or five weeks. The inhalers do very little.
A blood test shows raised ige of 527 but no triggers. I appear to have issues with my sinuses and polyps which are not helping. Doctors are reluctant to give me any more steroids and sadly seem to think that I may have COPD - my GP is arranging for me to have a scan on my lungs. Today I have been prescribed incruse which seems to be for COPD.
What do you think?
