Hello,

I wanted to see if I could get some insight on this issue. Lately, I have been having severe asthma attacks along with constant shortness of breath ( I have to yawn to catch my breath otherwise it feels like I am suffocating or someone is sitting on my chest ) and very bad coughing with phlegm and sometimes blood. I have had asthma all my life and it used to be bad when I was little, then it somewhat subsided for a few years, then it returned recently. It got worse after I had two very bad bouts of bronchitis ( both lasting a month ) within the last 3 months. I have been having very bad asthma attacks every day now and have to take about 10 puffs of my albuterol inhaler ( ProAir brand ) everyday as well as 3 breathing treatments too on average. It is usually worse at night where I wake up multiple times wheezing horribly and feel breathless. I have almost had to go to the hospital on multiple occasions. I saw a doctor when this first started and was prescribed with Montelukast SOD 5 Mg ( Singulair ), Pulmicort, Prednisone, and Dulera 200 mcg-5 mcg/actuation HFA aerosol inhaler , but none of those helped me. I also tried using a humidifier too just in case, but that was also to no avail. Does anyone have an idea of what this is? My asthma attacks seem to be getting progressively worse.
