Well, I went to the doctor today because I am so short of breath. My doctor does not want me to go on prednisone if at all possible because of all the side
I am having alot of chest pain and tightness which I always have but I just find it wears on me.
I have had my heart checked numerous times but I still find it hard to deal with.
hi, sorry Do you at least have an albuterol inhaler? I am pretty new at the whole asthma business but isn't there other drugs you can take if your doctor doesn't recommend Prednisone? Your doctor doesn't seem very helpful. Asthma is very frustrating...mine came on suddenly last year...seemed to go away for a bit them came back big time this summer/fall..I'm using my rescue inhaler everyday it sucks. Did your doctor give you any suggestions at all? I'd maybe go see another one, get a second opinion.
Don't know if this would help, but I take a low dose of prednisone every day. I take it for another health problem. If you take less than 5mgs. a day you should not have any long term effects. Of course that low dose may not be helpful, but just a suggestion.
