Any experiences with severe asthma?

I have been on treatments for 10 yrs to no avail. Prednisone 20 mgs daily. I have recently told nothing more to do now.

    nurselpn84 I see your post is from June. I am wondering if you found any of the articles suggested to be helpful, or relief from a new form of therapy other than Prednisone? Personally, I would not accept a doctor telling me there is nothing more that can be done. Your body…your fight! I got great relief from Xolair injections, though I did have to take up to 6 a month at one point. My asthma now has gone into remission. Wishing you well….never give up the fight! SandraOli

    Hi again, SandiOli and thanks for sharing what you found to work for your condition. We appreciate hearing success stories like yours as we can all benefit from your own personal experience.
    I’m hopeful, too, that we will hear back from nurselpn84…she seems to have gone silent since her post in late June.
    All the best,
