hi all, i was diagnosed with asthma ten year ago and have not needed an inhaler since i was first diagnosed. i have a life time of sinusitis. since the beginning of october, i have had a horrible time with my asthma. i have seen my pcp and and allergist. two weeks ago i was started on a steroid bronchodilating inhaler. i also finished a zpack for sinus and ear infection. i have been on steroids three times in the last 8 weeks. nothing has helped. i have the constant feeling of hands squeezing my lungs. ear infection remains as do symptoms of sinus infection. i am limiting my activities because i cant breathe. haven't excercised since October. and i am becoming totally depressed because i can't live my life. i have another appt with the allergist after christmas.
i am so new i don't know what to do. where do i turn? is this normal? thanks for any help.
