I moved about 16 months ago into a town house on a busy road with building sites close by. I had had very little trouble with asthma for many years, however shortly after moving I developed a cough and tightness in my chest. I saw a doctor for this and was given a new asthma medication which got rid of the cough.
A few months after moving I began to have daily nausea, fatigue and dizziness. I also seem to be clumsy (dropping things) and off balance and I become exhausted if I do anything strenuous. I have had these problems for over a year.
My doctors have been treating these symptoms as being separate to the asthma symptoms. Although the cough is gone I still use my inhaler often and have tightness in my chest and find that I take very short breaths, especially at night and often wake up dizzy or with a headache.
I was initially found to have a B12 deficiency. This was treated with a supplement (that I still take) and injections. My levels are now back to normal but the symptoms above have not changed.
I have seen a gastroenterologist who has not found any cause for the constant nausea.
I have had a colonoscopy, gastroscopy, pelvic and abdominal ultrasound, been tested for celiac, thyroid, iron and vitamin D deficiencies. My blood pressure is apparently normal.
I'm a 30 year old Australian female, non smoker, vegetarian.
Is it possible that the nausea, fatigue and dizziness are related to my asthma? I would appreciate any suggestions as my doctors seem to be running out of ideas.
