Hey everyone. OK twice now I have been to the Dr. First time was in TN at a urgent care and I was given a rescue inhaler and oral steroid. Well I noticed the oral steroid helped some. And I noticed that the dry cold air seemed to be a trigger. And so now that I came home for a visit...I am in the process of moving. I am still suffering asthma symptoms. Again I notice its worse when its cold. I don't like using the emergency inhaler unless I have to. And when I went to see a primary care dr. I told her about my symptoms and the meds I had been on. Showed her my inhaler. Told her how something as simple as sweeping a porch induced the wheezing and chest tightness. Well she did nothing! She just noted what I said. I am confused. I thought I needed some preventive medicine. I mean I feel so frustrated and miserable. I on and off feel symptoms and it bothers me. I don't want to have to just use my inhaler all the time. I thought I wasn't supposed to or its not good for you. She also said a specialist is not available for at least 4 months. I mean I don't know what to do. I feel really scared. And I don't feel like anything is being done. The last Dr. I went to basically was just like use your inhaler when you feel like you need to. Its albuterol. I feel really confused and frustrated.
