It took us 6 years to get a correct diagnosis of asthma for my son. He went through cough medicines, menthol on whatever body part I thought would ease the cough, baths and showers, a nebulizer and finally a trip to the Emergency Room that resulted in 30+ albuterol inhales. All because we were not told the correct information and all because our doctors didn't listen as closely as they could have.
My son has multiple food allergies but he also has pollen-induced asthma. I am extremely grateful that we finally got the medical attention that he needed. Looking back, there were many times that his breathing was labored and his chest was heaving in and out at a horrific rate and I could have lost him all because the term asthma was not introduced. Earlier diagnosis would have saved my son additional sickness, reactions to medications, loss of his time as a toddle and the simple act of breathing well.
