I am a 62 year old asthmatic . . .

I am a 62 year old asthmatic . . . have been diagnosed with pseudomonas In the lungs 5 years ago. It took an entire year to get a diagnose from the CDC doctor. The pulmonologist thought that it was asthma the entire time. 4 years later . . happened again. Same symptoms as before. A year later a bronc was done to wash out my lungs. Thick mucus throughout. The bronc plus one round of antibiotics did it. Never knew what it was because the state lab failed to do some of the requested test, then destroyed the sample. One year later, since June 2nd, 2018 . . here it is again. Same symptoms, again the pulmonologist thinks that it is asthma. Not asthma . . . I run in place at night to breath, emergency asthma does not work, Flovent seems to keep symptoms in check a bit. Already been through two rounds of antibiotics and two rounds of steroids. If it were asthma I would have been fine. Two 1/2 weeks after the antibiotic symptoms reoccur. Any ideas? I will be returning to the CDC DR. this week once again!
