Great article Teri!
I was diagnosed with asthma at 26...about six months ago. (I'm 27 now.) The diagnosis was a surprise to my and my pcp!! I had been send to a pulmonologist for possible sleep apnea. At my first appt with him, he told me he thought I might have asthma too and sent me for a lung function test that day at the hospital. Based on that test and the symptoms I was having, he told me I had moderate to severe asthma!!! Talk about a surprise!
I'm on advair, singular, and zyrtec right now daily with albuterol and prednisone as needed. I'm still trying to figure out my asthma triggers. I keep finding them...heat and humidity, cold, dust, pollen...and much to my annoyance the incense they use at church. There are a few others as well.
