I learned recently my GP has withheld info from me about a potential breathing issue, possibly asthma or COPD. I really, really, really don't want asthma as well as LPR; it's the end of my chances of getting my dream career if this turns out to be true. At the same time, I can't deny Ventolin helps me (lack of sleep and showers make me worse)! Can asthma inhalers help people who don't have asthma? I noticed yesterday it had no affect on me when I took it before bed, and today it failed to help when I took a warm (not hot or cold) shower.

Does your GP have a plan of action?

All I have right now is the usual brown and blue inhaler; brown, 2 puffs twice a day and blue 2 puffs up to 4 times a day. I've been at it for nearly a fortnight now, and neither can help in certain situations. For example, temperature seems to affect me greatly. Walking backwards and forwards between one room and another can start and stop symptoms instantly. Putting on a heated seat while sat in a car helps me greatly.

Again I only get short of breath; I can be tight chested without any symptoms, and I never get coughs or wheezes.
