I'm looking for any advice or suggestions, including diet or natural alternatives for asthma. I'm at my wits end trying to find a good regiment of medication to keep my asthma under control. I've had asthma since I was a small child, and in the past 4 years things have gradually gotten worse. I'm currently 30.

In the past 8 months since moving to Germany I've been on the following medications, depending on the doctor's advice at the time.I've also seen 4 different doctors and each put me on new meds right away. My flow meter ranges from 250 to 350 and lately I've been around 280.

10 years Advir/Seretide/Viani Forte 500/50 - daily inhaler
1 month- Foster 100/6 daily inhaler
1 month- Beroddual 20/50 - rescue inhaler
2 weeks Bretaris Genuair 322 - daily inhaler
2 weeks Montelukast/singular - pill
1 week Salbuhexal
Predazone 10mg - 3 days
4 months Vaini 500/50 daily inhaler
1 month Prednisolon 5mg
2 months Flutiform- daily inhaler
2 months Montelukast - pill (still on)
2 months Mometasonfuroat - naisel spray (still on)
Vaini - daily inhaler (on from today)
Prednisolon - 5mg daily (on from today)

Other symptoms include:
Coughing all the time and sometimes bringing up crap
Dreaming that I can't breath
Waking up tight and needing a rescue inhaler
Very little physical activity or wheezing and short of breath starts
When I'm not on the nasal spray, constant congestion and sneezing
Always exhausted. I can take a 3 hour nap during the day and then sleep through 8 hours during the night.

Other Concerns:
Wicked mood swings and depression when on Advair/Viani and/or Prednisolon Being on steroids long-term
Always increasing steroids/ Advair/Viani dosage and my body won't be able to come off of them.

IGE's are slightly elevated (127kU/I) but I test negativity to all allergy tests. The only time my lung function test looks good is when I'm on Prednisolon.

Any and all thoughts are welcomed!! It's been a long road and I know I'm not even close to being in a good place.
