    Severe asthma

    I am taking 4 inhalers daily sometimes 5 plus xolair shots every two weeks to treat my severe asthma. I also take a nasal spray and reactine for sinus issues and allergies. I am not feeling great tonight. I have very mild copd from the severe asthma and several chest infections. Just totally tired of not breathing great. I have a feeling I need to go on prednisone but I am dreading it. I have been on it so many times. I am crossing my fingers that my breathing will improve.
    Can anyone relate?

    Re: Severe asthma

    I know how you feel. I took prednisone 4x this past year. I aso was taking 4 different medications daily. Iíve been on steroid inhalers for 10 years. I was diagnosed with asthma at age 35. Can you believe that it was gluten? I did some research online and long story short - I eliminated gluten from my diet recently and now Iím off my meds and feel great! I stopped taking me inhalers and I feel fine. No coughing. No chest tightness. No stuffy nose. I canít believe it?! hope this helps. Also research Candida bacteria because prolonged use of steroids can lead to overgrowth of this bacteria in your intestines. Feel better soon!!!
