Cough Variant Asthma
I was diagnosed with Cough Variant Asthma when i was in second grade. I was always coughing really hard and had some trouble breathing. I would love to meet others with CVA also. I have never talked to anyone else who had CVA, and doctors are not really aware of it. Some of the symptoms are different from regular asthma like no wheezing, pulse oxygen is always normal (even during attacks) and violent coughing up to months after an attack. I also have convulsions and lose consciousness during attacks. Anyone else have CVA or experience the symptoms that I do?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
