I have what I would classify as moderate persistent asthma, as well as lots of environmental allergies. Eczema/atopic dermatitis too. I have had a couple bad flare-ups lately and have been disappointed, frustrated, and exhausted trying to get things back under control. I just finished my second course of prednisone of the spring, and (fingers crossed), I finally feel like things are under control again. I have a camping trip scheduled for the 4th of July holiday weekend, so I have some anxiety about how my asthma and allergies will react to that. I often feel like just as soon as things get under control, I get hit with another flare-up and I'm exhausted.
I'm currently on Symbicort, Singulair, Allegra-D, and Flonase to control my asthma and allergies. I did allergy shots for about a year before I gave up because I kept having asthma flare-ups. I might give it another shot (pun intended) in the future, depending on what my new allergist recommends.
