Hi my name is Tiffany I am 19 years old i have been going through some medical issues since march. I have these "attatcks" where i pretty much just stop breathing its almost like an asthma attatck but i have an attatck about once a week, i have been hospitalized about 20x since march an i have been to the ER everyweek brought by paramedics, My pomonlogist has been running a bunch of test on me, i had a vq scan, pft evaluation ct scan of my lungs tons of blood work and everything comes out good except for my difusing lung compacity is extremely low. I am now on oxygen 24/7 without it i turn blue. I have been on steriods since march now as well as the highest doses of inhaled steiroids. I am just looking for an answer. My lungs are always wheezy an diminished. This is not the life i want to live at 19 i just wish someone could give me some advice on what to do. I have been tested for COPD sum docs say i have it others say i dont but they said even if i do have it thats not why i keep having these attatcks. I was dianosed with asthma at the age of 8 but they say this is not Normal asthma. i have been researching everything you could possibly think of that has to do with lungs because i just need to find an answer. All my doctors tell me a i am walking miracle because with these attatcks i have i am lucky paramedics have made it on time. please write back if you have any answers or advice.
Thank you so much
