Hey all;Went through the last 12days of *&^% and still not back to myself as of yet. And still on prednisone for another 11days before getting into the specialist, who opened up a spot just for me, which makes me wonder
well, be repeating breathing tests as well as chest X-rays.
so I have done all the tests, what is next? Is it just a matter of finding the right controllers. Already on Symbicort (4puffsx2day), Singulair (1aday), Ventolin (which at this time can be anywhere from 2x a day to 4x a day - so yeah no much control). Is there other tests that might occur?
Just curious, just trying to figure out what might be
Thanks All;

Hi All;Just wanted to write a bit of a note. After 3wks of being off, I have been approved to go back to work, modified and shortened hours but at least back to work.
Still not totally sure what happened, other than a possible viral infection. I do think thats what it is but what bothers is that now any time I get a touch of something is it going throw everything out of whack and send me to hospital?? I hope not
Still on prednisone for another 16days. And still high doses of symbicort. But no Ventolin for a few days too. And told not to use the adrovent anymore, which is just fine with me, horrid stuff!!
So fingers crossed that things go well
