I have asthma & COPD. It is not normally debilitating, but every couple of months, I develop wheezing and congestion, so I go to my pulmonologist and get a steroid shot and a course of antibiotics. For several years, that took care of it and in between, I was just fine. However, for the last year, I have had hives and swelling different places, sometimes, but not always together. For instance, the first time, I had swelling in my lips and cheek and a large raised red patch on my groin.
