Uncontrolled Asthma
MedleyK posted:
I have been out of work for over a week now with asthma symptoms. It seems like a chest cold/infection spurred the whole thing, but that part is over and I still experience shortness of breath after doing simple activities. I am on prednisone, qvar, singular plus allegra for allergies and taking albuterol treatments 3-4 times daily. Has anyone shared a similar experience? how long did it take to gain control again?

It sounds like you are doing just about everything you can. The only thing missing would be an antibiotic. I assume you have seen a doctor, but it may be time for another visit.

Take care and
God bless,
