Yes, my asthma is amped up when I get a cold, but that is not the issue right now. Actually, when I had my annual pulmonary function test in May, my allergy doc told me that if I did that well next year I could probably get off the Flovent (just a daily asthma inhaler). Then the CD diagnosis comes and it seems like every time I start a new drug, I get a problem with my breathing. Also, when I have bad GERD and when I'm constipated.
Interesting about the CD moving to the lungs. I will have to ask my doc about that. Doc did say that if the new GERD medication doesn't work, that I should probably see a pulmonologist. It sounds like I should get a CT scan of lungs to find out some info. Problem is, I don't have the breathing problem every day. Some days I am fine. It usually correlates with a regular bowel movement or D.
