Welcome, Longen.

I'm not a doctor or any other medical person, but yes, I believe you can have asthma and not have low oxygen in your blood. My allergist says I have asthma and my oxygen is 100% - because I've never smoked.

Your doctor must be doing something if he's given you symbicort and a rescue inhaler. If you feel he is not treating you enough you can try to get a second opinion from another doctor.

Is your doctor a family doctor or a pulmonologist (lung doctor) or an asthma and allergy doctor? They all treat asthma.

I hope someone else who knows more than I do about asthma will come along with more help.

Best wishes.

yes you can definitely have asthma and have very good blood oxygen. Find a real doctor, a pulmonlogist, allergist or a real regular doctor. This guy must have been at the bottom of his class. Asthma is very real and very debilitating.

I had one who said that and I walked back in and got a treatment from another practitioner in the same dump hole. I told them to never mind about billing my insurance company. I called my insurance company and told them about the first a hole doc he would not be paid and told the second person the same thing.

Brooklyn never fools around. THEY WERE NEVER PAID. Wake up to all the bad docs out there. I am sorry for you but your health is more important than some medical moron's ego trip.
