My boyfriend is a stonecutter and breathes dust in his lungs on a daily basis. This causes him to cough and wheeze uncontrollably to the point where he vomits on a daily basis. He is reluctant to recieve help for this and I am wondering what the long term impact it will have on him? He went to the emergency about two months ago and they told him he had asthma, bronchiospasms and also sinusitis. Is this all related to the dust? and can you give me some advice on what to tell him?
