The new year came … and brought me a cough, rough lungs, and a tight chest. Two days ago, my cough turned into longer coughing fits (or episodes) which were difficult to stop and had me gasping for breath.
And a mild headache came and lasted two days. At this point, I pretty much decided it was time to see the doctor. Did I mention I am tired also. (but no other problems)
The diagnosis this morning was: temporary asthma. Which is exactly what I starting to think it might be … but goodness who gets asthma for the first time at 33 years old?
I was told there was no reason to believe I would have asthma the rest of my life and this may go away for good … or it might be triggered by something … or well, the bottom line is there is no knowing what the future brings.
So, for the time being I have 2 inhalers and was told to call back if I don’t feel 75% better in two weeks time.
