You need to change doctors. Get one that will prescribe asthma-prevention inhalers like Symbacort or Advair. They prevent asthma symptoms.
Asthma is not in your head, but in your lungs. You need to have emergency asthma inhalers available to you like Pro-Air, Ventolin, Provental. You need to have a nebulizer along with the albuterol nebulizer solution to use with it.
You need to start wearing elasticized waisted pants/skirts/shorts because you will be able to breathe with your diaphram more easily. Pushing out your diaphram pulls air into your lungs.
This doctor doesn't have a clue what it feels like to almost die from an asthma attack. My skin was gray when I got to the emergency room. I have dealt with this problem for over 37 years. Pay attention to how medications affect your body. If you find that something like Singulair makes your heart pound, tell your doctor. It did that to me and I refuse to take it now.View Thread
