Asthma return after 18 years?!?!

From about 18 months old to age 14, I had awful asthma attacks, several of which hospitalized me. We determined they were alergy/seasonally related - it always came at the same time of the year. Then suddenly at age 14 they ended.

About 4-5 years ago, I began getting really bad allergies and sinus headaches seasonally. Then about 2 years ago these allergies have turned into back into the full blown attacks of my youth.

I have read that this is common but the Dr.s don't know why. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Why do you think it came back?

Re: Asthma return after 18 years?!?!

I don't really have an answer for you. My guess i that it's just the chronic nature of the disease. It may be dormant but it's there. Now,that's just my guess and not based on anything but my gut feeling.
I share your frustration and hope you feel better,
Tom
