Denise,
I did get into the allergist.  That didn't go real well.  I went in and told him how I felt.  I told him the symbicort seemed to have a bad effect on me.  He went on to say, maybe you should see a psychiatrist or psychologist.  He said since my PFTs aren't  as bad as I say I am feeling it has to be ashma with something else.  He said heart was ruled out so it must be anxiety.  I get so frustrated with these Dr.s sometimes.  I wish they could be inside my body when I am feeling this bad.  Anxiety attacks don't last for days.  I have never had a racing heart.
Thanks for being a great online friend.
I did speak with my regular MD about the Pulmonologist.  Her assistant called there and they said they couldn't see me any sooner.  I will wait it out and try to stay positive.  My husband sure puts up with a lot with my health.  God Bless him. 
The pulmonologist did cut down the symbicort to 1 puff twice a day.  He also said to use albuterol as needed and benedryl.  He also gave me a prescription for prednisone in case I have problems in New Mexico.   I didn't take the symbicort this morning and felt much better by late afternoon.  I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping though too lately. 
I agree getting back to work will probably help.  It will be great to see the kids.  We have great staff at our school that I look forward to seeing.
Thanks again for all you continued support. 
Let me know how things are going for you.  I am glad you are enjoying being back to school.  The kids are sure lucky to have you as a teacher.
Take Care,
               Wendi

Wendi, can you get to National Jewish in Denver? I know LdyJane had serious breathing problems and went there; they were the ones that diagnosed her and as far as I know she has fared the best when it comes to resolution of this odd asthma/not asthma breathing stuff.

Renee,
Thanks for the information. I am in Michigan so that would be a bit hard for me. I would like to but I dont' want to lose my job. I have just been off six weeks for Nissen surgery. I have thought about the Cleveland Clinic. That would be a lot closer for me. I did go the the University of Michigan and the only answer I got was mild obstruction. He thought part of it might me reflux and deconditioning. I got the reflux surgery and felt a little better at first. I now feel worse then before the surgery. It is very frustrating.
