HI!YOU have not specify ur age and sex. asthma ur suffering from may be stress induce or itmay be related to food allergy. another possibikity is acid-peptic disease or GERD[GASTRO-ESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE] so pl.before switching over to steroid consult god pulmonologist o gastroenterologist.
Inhalers are always the first line treatment for asthma. They can be relievers (such as salbutamol) or preventers (such as steroids). You seem to be using only relievers. That is dangerous.
Please get you objective assessment done using a spirometry. Get you present attack treated well first. Later, the goal of treatment is to keep you free from symptoms with no need for rescue medicines. Persistent symptoms with frequent rescue medicines will lead to airway remodeling and permanent damage to the airways!
If the asthma is not gettting under control. It is beter you take steroids this is very helpful in preventing the symptoms. There are various steroid sprays available you can ask your doctor to prescribe the steroid inhaler.
Hi, I have problem of common cold, the symptoms are continuous sneezing, blocked nose, headache specially at right side etc. When a take a tablet containing chlorpheniramine, or montek lc, I get temporary relief, but then again in a week or 10 days time, I get this common cold. During my childhood, I had the problem of mild asthama. Recently I was suggested by an ENT surgeon to take Fluxonase nasal drops which worked for me and I did not have cold for 2 months. Then again it developed because of change in weather. Should I go for CT scan, or should I keep taking dosage of Fluxonase as and when I get cold ?
Hi I have a little boy who is four, he suffers badly with asthma, has been put on to medication to help control it but nothing is working. My doctors responds wasn t Just up his sterioids since taking the orally sterioids he s become very distressed, can t sit still, hitting, punching. And again another nose bleeds. He seems to be having nose bleeds every time he s put onto sterioids. His pumps never seem to help him when he s having an attack. And every time he is put on steroid tablets, surely there must be something else to help him, he can t keep going in hospital every month. He is due to start school in September and going to really struggle
I am a 54 year old female that has had allergies and asthma for over 20 years. We recently moved to the Northwest and had to change doctors. The allergist that I went to took me off the Flovent that I was using and put me on shots. After two years of getting 6 shots a week for all the allergies that I have, I was not improving at all. So I went to another allergy doctor, who put me on a maintenance level of Prednisone, This worked wonders but I gained a lot of weight and my gynecologist was worried about bone density. Now I m at a point where I m not sure what to do. I am taking Singulair for the asthma and Nasacort for the allergies. I currently have no allergy doctor, just my Primary. She has suggested that I go back on Flovent and has written a prescription. Does this seem like the right course of treatment or is there something better that I should be doing?

Hi, I ve been experiencing chest tightness for over a month. It is not constant, but periodic. I ve been to my GP who listened to my chest and found no wheezing. She prescribed Advair 2x/day for a month and had me see her after 2 weeks of use. She said my lungs were clear but to finish the month on Advair so that we can stabalize the tightness. I am in my 3rd week now and am currently experiencing the Same degree of tightness that caused me to go to her 3 weeks ago. The only things i ve changed with my lifestyle in the past couple of months is going on the Pill for the first time in my life (starting in Feb.). I am now 35. And i ve added daily fish oil capsules as a dietary supplement. Can any of these cause intermittent chest tightness or could it be more serious, like asthma, lung disease or even Cancer? (I have never smoked in my life but my father smoked in the house when i was growing up.)
Hello, I have a 4 1/2 month old baby who is breathing at 72 breaths per minute resting. She was 38weeks at delivery and, while small (2.75 kg) was pretty good for a twin. Her growth is fine and development normal. I am just concerned about breath rate as our 3 year old has bronchiolitis obliterans and is oxygen dependent. I think we did not diagnose her problems early enough. Any advice?
My daughter is almost 18 and has been having trouble with her breathing since she was 13! like she can t can t catch her breath,even while just watching TV. Used to have trouble getting to sleep, now she can but wakes up extremely exhausted like she never slept!

Had a spirometry test-neg result. blood test said her white blood count was a little low. But no real answers! She is irritable most times, due to lack of sleep. She is very frustrated! He gave her nose spray, still no change. what about her adrenal glands? can you help?
