    Chronic Asthma
    cande20 posted:
    Hello. I've been having asthma for over 2 months without having progress. I went to the doctor and he gave some good medications and antibiotics because I started out with bronchitis. It did get better for some days. My cough is better and my allergies are better but this asthma does not want to go. I have to use a breathing machine at least 4 to 5 times a day and that is not normal for me. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi cande20,

    I am sorry that you are having such bad asthma symptoms. I think that it would be best for you to call your doctor and set up and time to speak with him about your symptoms and about getting some relief. It might help if you work with him to develop an asthma action plan to help manage your symptoms and prevent any asthma attacks. The link above will give you some pointers and templates for doing so. I hope that you are feeling better soon!
