I have asthma which has been under control for years. I've been on Advair 100/50 for several years and hardly ever used my albutoral. HOWEVER, after a cold in July my asthma flaired up. Went to doctor. Went to Advair 250/50 and also Prilosec OTC. No change. Doc took me off Priosec and upped me to Advair 500/50. Still no change. My symptoms are, and they are not constant: need to clear throat, sometimes a burning or rawness feeling in throat, some chest discomfort, sometimes wheezing and tightness. The strange part is that all symptoms subside when I lay down and I sleep really well at night. But most of the time, not alway, I get up and slowly feel the need to clear my throat. I've had two days in the past week that I had no symptoms. GOing into doctor again tomorrow. Another strange thing, symptoms seem to subside, or at least lessen, when I'm talking, moving around (not exercise moving around).
Anyone else have similar type symptoms and do you have a diagnosis???
