So have been having hacking and gasping fits for 2 1/2 to week weeks. I went to urgent care after a week and received cough syrup with codeine and bactrum antibiotic for bronchitis. After another week of no improvement, I went to regular doctor. I was told it was allergy related and brought on an asthma thing. I have only had mild seasonal allergies that just make me sneeze ans stuff up but is taken care of with benedryl or claritan. He did a chest xray that was good and my peak flow test before breathing treatment was 335 and 370 after. I am 36 and 5'6" Anyway, I am still having the same symtoms. It always gets worse as they day goes on and it horrible at night. Not stuffy, or sneezing, I just cant breath right. My chest feels heavy, I am really winded and when I start coughing, I start gasping. I have only been on the prednisone and inhaler for 2 days. Should I give it longer or call the doc again? I have not had to deal with this before.
