Customer Question
What type of doctor...

What type of doctor, other than an ENT, allergist, or pulmanologist (been there and done that) would I have to consult with to address my problem that has the same symptoms as an allergy, sinsus, or asthma problem? Currently only able to control with prednisone

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, for five years but not it is much worst than when it started.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have been keeping notes since the time it stared. My PCP can says he has nothing more to offer. The Allergists says it is not an allergy problem. The ENT thinks it is an allergy but the IgE blood test do not support that believe and sublingual immnotherapy drop test symptoms much much worst. I believe it may be a bronchial issue

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Other than this problem I consider myselt to be very healthy. The only durgs I take is for this problem. The breathing problem I get without prednisone would send me to ER. Prednisone is not a good drug to take for long periods of time.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
