I was taking Symbicort last year due to a cough and trouble breathing due to allergies and related asthma. It went away in the winter so I stopped the Symbicort. Now I feel the symptoms are back. Runny nose. Post nasal drip. A cough in my throat when I take a deep breath or exercise a lot. I believe I complained to you guys about this same thing last year. But having health anxiety I need to check in again. I need to get a grip so I thought some reassurance would help. I went to the doctor last year and other the prescribing Symbicort and a rescue inhaler he wasn't very concerned.

Did you see an allergist or a family doctor? I'd certainly see an allergist and get tested for allergies.

In some parts of the country pollen is already high, if you're in the US. Up birth where I am we've still got freezing nights, so no pollen for a while.

Whee are you exercising? You can pick up nasty bugs in a gym. Outside pollen?

Steroids work for asthma, but if you've got allergies you need antihistamines, or get the shots like I do.

Go to an allergist. They treat asthma too.
