My doctor thinks I have severe asthma. The daily medications that I’ve tried all help a little bit but not enough, I feel less reactive to triggers but I still have symptoms every day. My rescue inhaler and nebulizer rarely work for more than 4 hours and sometimes last less than 1 hour. Sometimes they work wonders but oftentimes they only give me partial relief or what seems like no relief at all.
I was sent for a methacholine test to confirm whether or not I have asthma and for my insurance if I end up needing biologics but I was squeezed into a last minute spot and had been taking trelegy for a days. I had my last dose less than 24 hours before the test and I had no reaction to the methacholine.
Is it possible for the trelegy to cause me to have no symptoms or lung function changes from the methacholine? I’m nervous because if I don’t have asthma then I’m probably stuck with all these symptoms while my doctors figure out what’s wrong with me. I feel like if I truly have asthma then I would have had some sort of response and my follow up with the doctor is still a few weeks away.
