Developed Asthma 14 Years Ago

I’m Kimberley and I have asthma that is pretty well controlled; it only gets me when I get a cold or bad sinus infection. But this year after having bronchitis and pneumonia I’m having a hard time getting my asthma to act right.. lol.. I’ve been placed on Breo and these side effects are something else. This is day 6 of being on it and it seems my body has adjusted to it, but I hope to not be on this med long. My doctor has referred me to a lung doctor and an ENT. So once I get these appointments hopefully they will be able to tell me something.

    Hi Kimberly and welcome. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with asthma. It sounds like being referred to two specialists (a pulmonologist and an ENT physician) will be just the right thing for you moving forward. I thought you might find it helpful to review this article on asthma specialists: https://asthma.net/basics/specialists/
