I have had asthma all my life.
Sometimes it gets better and sometimes gets out of control. I went for years with almost no problem. Then in my 20's I was in hospital many times with BAD attacks etc. Then I had allergy shots for 7 years. I was ok until about
12 years ago, I went to Florida and about
croaked. The humidity, pollen, molds etc. there about
put me under..my friend had to call an ambulance and I spent 3 weeks in hospital. Anyway, I was put on Prednisone, and 3 inhalers...nebulizers, oxygen etc. If you go on Prednisone is makes you feel great, but be careful and don't stay on it for long if you can help it. I was on it on and off for 10 years and started to get serious side effects...I am off now...and having problems with my body adjusting to being off of it. My best inhaler is Symbicort, and Handihaler...these two work the best for me. I am pretty stable now..use oxygen some...any questions, let me know. I now also have COPD and emphasema (from smoking)..so take care of yourself.
