My son has beens suffering since he was about 2 with his asthma. He takes his meds every day all year long. I am about ready to pull my hair out because I cant get his under control for more than 3 weeks. Sometimes I just wanna cry cause I know he feels so bad. He never wheezes but he coughs sooo bad his stomach muscles hurt and are sore for days. He has missed 17 days of school this year with asthma and will miss more I know. He's had allergy testing, all that was neg, he was tested for CF thank goodness that was neg too. He is on antibiotics and steroids every month and thats no joke. The steriods make him soooo unbearable and unpleasant. Its whine whine whine for 6 days. I know its the meds but sometimes its just really hard. I dont know what other testing they can do to see why we cant keep his undercontrol. Does anyone else have this problem or know what else I can do. There is no pets in the house, i keep the floors vaccumed, we dont smoke around him, I wash his sheets and dust. Please give me advice anyone.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
