Hi,I had gone through your query and understand your concern.

If I were the treating physician ,I would check for inhaler technique and triggers like cold,dust etc first and perform spirometry to confirm the diagnosis.

Then I would treat following step up management guideline.It would better if you would have mentioned the name of your inhalers.

Anyway,please do not be so tensed.There are oral medications along with inhaler to treat asthma and you will have good asthma control.

So my suggestion is :please consult with a respiratory medicine specialist to show your inhaler technique and get proper step care management.

Hope this will help you.If you have further queries,please do not hesitate in writing us.

Wish you rapid recovery.
