So you think that is the only option or should I try to use a low dose of pred to treat the inflammation caused by the ICS? Do you have any other suggestions?

Dear Doctor I've had low O2 in my sleep of 75 for a while- my sleep is harmful and dangerous. My Fev1 is stuck at 72% even on dulera, singulair, combivent, xopenex, spiriva. I wheeze when I exhale- I exhale for less than a second and then the breath stops and I wheeze. Even prednisone/medrol/solumedrol doesn't really help this obstruction/wheezing. My peak flow was about 400 last month but now past 600. I have these headaches and I can't think when I run into smoke/pollution.

Three weeks later, with no improvement in the sensation, a dry cough developed. GP prescribed Advair 500, Singulair, Combivent QID. No improvement after another week and now I have severe nausea in the morning which goes away by about noon. GP wants to go with Predisone regiment. I have no real trouble breathing, just the sensation, though GP reports hearing some wheezing (I hear none). I am wondering whether this could be Esophageal cancer.
