I feel like my breathing is so constricted and I have asthma,inhalers arent helping. Can I have gerd without heartburn? I had it bad for 6 months but this feels like my larynx and esophagus? Neck and chest seem red, patchy, and fluid. I touch there and it leaves the white fingerprint. And again I feel like im choking. Please help!
Do you possibly have allergies? Expecially to milk products? I have asthma,was having similar problem on Ibuterol so my doctor tells me is going to write a script for Advair. Fortunatley I had read about it in Prevention magazine the day before & it stated if you have milk allergiers do not take this medicine. I took it with me to the doctors, because I just knew that was what he was going to do. Then he said "well, I have some sample of another one you can try & see if that helps". It was Symbicort, & thank God he gave me the prescribing info with it. It also said, if you have any allergies to milk, do not us this or other products like it as it may worsen your problem with breathing, close up you bronchials, & death could ensue! Scared me to death! I have lots of allergies, & some people have them, but don't even know it. This really sounds like an allergic reaction to me. Leaving a white finger print is usually swelling. If you are having trounle breathing, & its now the weekend, go to an ER please, & tell them about your previous history with inhalers, & about could you be allergic to something even in the medications. I am allergic to corn, & cornstarch is used to bind pills together! As an example. (By the way, my doc grabbed the page from prevention & kept it, because at first I don't think he believed me.) Their are other things than inhalers to use if you have chrontic Asthma. Theophylline is a good one & it's a pill. My doc when I suggested it said "its kind of old fasioned." I going yeah, but it worked! Good luck to you. I am worried since it is a weekend & you won't follow up about going to an ER. Please at least call them. Let me know how you are doing Sorry this is so long.
