Lifelong battle

I’ve been diagnosed since age 3 and been on a slew of medications! And even though I’ve been in/out of doctors and hospitals for various respiratory, pneumonia, and bronchitis conditions-all when I was younger- even today I find medication only goes so far with me. I still have daily symptoms and am now trying to re-assess my next step. It is a very frustrating condition whenever you feel you can’t do things without bumping into triggers. Mine are everyday things like cleaning, smells, shopping, temperatures, heat,food and drink. I’m now being tested for a chemical that, if present,:indicates a lung disease–not asthma. And also doing an updated PFT. So I’m hoping I get some better answers in the next few weeks to determine how else to stay on top of this.
