Discussions that mention xolair

Asthma board


I quit smoking.
Slightly after I last posted.
Cats gone.

Problem still exists...:(

Here are some updates.
I just posted this on the Anxiety board....

(I've been having the "can't get a deep breath" sensation that seems popular on this board.
The symptoms include
"Weird clicking noise in my chest"
"Inability to get a deep breath"
"Sometimes better when yawning"
"Heavy feeling in abs"
"Muscle pain in back"
"Panic attacks that accompany it, sometimes not"
"Gets worse when alone"
"Gets better when not concentrating on it"

The reason I ask, is that all my doctors (ENT, Primary, Pulmonologist) are calling it allergy related asthma. I've always had mild asthma and allergies.
But apparently, my allergy score skyrocketed recently.
Although my lungs apparently sound clear as a bell....
I have a feeling it's NOT allergies...

Anyone deal with this and get over it? )

My allergist wants to do a year of allergy shots.
My asthma doctor wants to put me on Xolair because of my allergy tests.
I've had both my whole life and I don't feel like its either.
I'm being prescribed Xolair for my asthma.
They said I'm basically the poster boy for it after seeing my scores on the allergy testing.

I still feel like that's not it.
It feels more anxiety related.
But asthma is too scary to mess with.
