Hi all, I saw the new dr today and he was great.  He spent at least an hour with me, took a complete history and answered all my questions.  He changed my med.  I am now on symbicort. The azmacort I was on he said was an older med and not very strong and wasn't helping me.  I can still use my albuterol if I need a rescue.  He gave me a sample symbicort and had me use it to be sure I was using it correctly.  And I have not had to use the albuterol all day.  So I am very hopeful that I will begin to get better.  He said that sometimes asthma can flair up and you need different treatment or stronger med which this is.  So now I have answers and feel so much better. So there is hope.  Thanks everyone for taking the time to make me feel better and not worry so much.
