I am newly diagnosed with Adult onset (46). I do recall SOB when I would try to kiss my husband like teenagers in love, literally having to stop and catch my breath. And when I get sick I am so short of breath. A few times over the last two years I recall it would take me an hour to recover after walking to the bathroom when sick with a bug. I never wheeze though except sometimes when I laugh. Get this….I am a nurse. I thought no wheeze meant no asthma. I have allergies galore and the last two March's have seen me on all the OTC meds available plus steroids to get through the hump. This year, despite being on prednisone I had terrible breathing problems and was placed on Symbicort and told to get tested by an allergist. I have 30% improvement on testing and was diagnosed mid April 2016. I am on ProAir PRN, Symbicort, Singulair, Spiriva, Magnesium, Tumeric, Vitamin D, Flonase, Azelastine, Pazeo and Allegra D PRN. I take allergy shots 2 x week. I am having more frequent acute attacks, Sudden SOB, chest pressure, can't get air out, using abdomen, majorly panicked the first time. I have had three attacks since last Friday – Friday, Saturday and Tuesday. I was given pred shot Saturday and am on a pred pack. Tuesday they started alb nebs. I am doing the nebs 4 x d and it is keeping things at bay. Question, why so severe, sudden and unresponsive to total control? Help!
