... Anybody have any ideas on this. I will be seeing my pulmonologist next month and was just wondering if this is something I should discuss with him.

... nologist told me to do. I have had these symptoms for a little over two years now, so I don't think it is because I am sick.

... I have asthma and I generally don't wheeze unless I'm really sick. The majority of my attacks are without wheezing. Do they have you on any asthma medication, like an inhaled steriod?

I can't tell you how many times I've been in the ER and some newbie doctor says, "well I don't hear any wheezing" while the respiratory/pulmonology person is saying my airways are too tight to wheeze. I also have crazy allergies. I test 3-4+ for almost everything that grows outside as well as dust, dust mites and... (6 replies)

The pattern of symptoms fit the asthma diagnosis, so did the fact that the inhalers seem to help. Nonallergic asthma is not an easy diagnosis or treatment. You need a good pulmonologist. (7 replies)
