Asthma,Allergies & Severe Scoliosis

I'm 20 years old and have been suffering from asthma for over 14 years. My asthma go so bad that my lungs began to shut down and i was put on numerous different steroids. Well finally my doctor put me on xolair to help "control" my asthma. Unfortunately there are two other factors that make my asthma worse. I suffer from bad allergies (trees, grass, mold, mildew, cats, etc.) and I also have severe scoliosis that has caused the bottom of my left lung to be slightly crushed. I feel like i have stressed all the options that i have at home when i have an asthma attack. I normally take 2 nebulizer treatments, take my rescue inhaler, and drink black coffee...and yet i still feel very tired, continue to cough and wheeze. My local emergency room is tired of seeing me in there for asthma problems... What else am i to do?
