Really scared
Sep 22, 2003
hello, i am 29 years old with 2 young children and a husband with a very chronic back condition to take care of. i have been told i have very severe chronic life threating asmtha with phemunia on top of it know just recetly. my meds are barely working. the meds i'm on are advair once in morning and once at night,60 mgs predizone, convient every 6 hours and albutrol every 4 hours and know they added albtutrol nebizer treatments on asmtha just feels so out of controll and i have never felt so depentdant on my meds if i dont take them right on schedule i go into really severe attacks. even 10 mintues late. as i write this i cant breathe very good. this morning as i was getting my son ready for school i feel down my stairs due to having a attack my son said my lips turned blue and had just used my machine 10 minutes before and so i used another one which helped but thats 2 treatments in a hours which i know its good. i don't like using the machine gives me the scakes really bad i know that side affect will disappear but why are the meds not working that well i feel hopeless. is there anything that i can do to improve my condition.i'm sorry i know i have posted all over this board but am just really scared. know my husband doesnt even want me on the stairs anymore. says he will get my son up before he leaves for work in morning and down stairs dressed before he leaves i feel like i'm losing the battle on asmtha and its winning i'm not a quiter if anything i fight harder than anyone i've had a hard life and fight hard i dont give up on anything but seem to be losing this one is there anything i can do ?????????????????????.
any help or things to try would be helpfull. yes i'm doing everything my doctors tell me to do bye the book like clock work and yes i am letting them know whats going on. but nothing seems to help that much. this one helps a little and that one the same but nothings seems to control it. i trust my doctor he knows my mothers history and my doctor even addmitted i'm following in my mothers footsteps and thats what scares him.he is calling a asmtha specialist to have me go see him because they ran some tests and he says that i have damged my lungs over 25 percent which what does that mean??????? i understand i damaged them but how do they get the percent of damage??? any replies would be great thanks for listening......

hello, thank you for all the valueable information i will ask about those test on my next visit. my phemunia is finally gone know i have devolped a large mass of flem in my throat that has moved my thonthis over to the side of my throat. not fun and very very painfull. its getting better but is taking forever. my asmtha is still very out of control have increased my advair to 250/50 2 times a day. on the albtrol treatments 4-5 times a day know and on inhaler every 2-4 hours. still have attacks about 4 times a day which is reduced to the 10-15 times a day i was having but would like to have none. my husband has went to understaning and loving to rude, understaning is a joke, and all he does is complain about the house work. wish he would understand that this is a illness thats not going away atleast not anytime soon. he figured when my phemunia left so would the asmtha attacks. this morning told me he was sick of hearing about it. well how does he think i feel i'm the one going though it . how do i get him to understand and not hate me for being sick all the time. well thanks for all the info and will ask my doctor next week i have to go in every week or sooner depending on how i'm doing.
