    25 yr daughter having problems controlling her asthma

    My daughter is 25 years old and she's had asthma since she was 6 months old. She has a continuous dry cough, tightness of the chest and gets very short of breath in long spurts. She sometimes brings up white phlegm. She does not always wheeze. When her asthma plays up her voice also goes hoarse. She's never smoked. She says she gets very tired as she feels she's working extra hard all the time to breathe.

    She does the breath test where she blows into the tube - today her best was 250. Apparently, her sats are ok but even when she's having her salbutamol and her preventer they don't always get it under control. She has a nebuliser which she also uses to try and control it.

    We've seen many doctors and had lots of hospital visits. She needs expert advice to control her asthma.
