I was diagnosed with allergy induced asthma earlier this year after my sister visited and brought her dog that I am apparently allergic to. I had not had breathing problems before this, allergies yes, but not chest tightness or any other asthma type symptoms. I was put on 2 different inhalers to reduce the inflammation, but it was not not working. I had to use my rescue inhaler multiple times every day. So my allergist put me on a short course of Prednisone to reduce inflammation, which helped some but after I was off it the symptoms came right back. So I went back to the allergist, he took a blood sample, and said I had elevated IgE and eosinophils consistent with severe asthma. I went to my primary doctor for a breathing test, but the results came back normal. I am just frustrated cuz I feel like it’s all in my head, but I know that chest pain/tightness, coughing, shortness of breath, and being exhausted all the time is NOT normal. Does anyone else struggle with this or struggle with getting a proper diagnosis?
