So, ANOTHER round of prednisone, changed from Advair to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symbicort</span>
and still had a rescue inhaler-which I used frequently b/c I was always short of breath. Nothing seemed to help. I had no cough, no wheezing, but shortness of breath and not sleeping. At this point, I was getting DESPERATE. Went back to the pulmonologist who said he suspected the asthma meds weren't working b/c I had a condition known as Vocal Cord Dysfunction-or VCD.
