I stated in my other post that I went to the doctor last week and was diagnosed with asthma. But I just looked at the diagnosis sheet that the doctor had given me at the end of the visit and it doesn't say asthma, it says RAD. What is RAD? Is it the same as asthma or something completely unrelated. She had also diagnosed me with gastritis and anxiety- is RAD something in relation to either of those maybe?
I'm confused. She said it was asthma but the diagnosis sheet doesn't say asthma anywhere on it.
Thanks  ~Amelia

RAD = Reactive Airway Disease.  It's another term for Asthma.

Take care,

Thanks Razzle.  I would have been just as confused as Amelia.  I'll have to look that up.
 
Thanks again,

Hi sway sorry you are confused by what the doctors say. you sound as if you have asthma and you will have to take care of yourself but dont panic with the right medication you will control it and live an active and happy life.I have had severe asthma for 30 years and still walk, swim and cycle ...when my asthma is good and rest when it is not. Asthma is a bloody awful disease that catches you out and you have to learn what triggers the attacks and avoid them...keep positive luv grooveyx
