I am a 30something young gal who had managed asthma until 2 years ago. My husband and I moved from the NW to Upstate NY. Since this move, my asthma has progressivly gotten worse..I had a scratch test done of the area allergens and found I am allergic to 17 trees and 4 grasses that grow only in this part of the country, I have had 10 xolair injections and it is not helping....My allergy/Asthma specialist is sending me to Boston for a confirmation of Churg Stauss Syndrome but I am not confident this is the problem as I don't have many markers of the disease...My asthma flare ups are random and not linked to anything we can track and do not respond to asthma meds as they should...they can be very severe...I am on Advair, Astepro,singulair, allegra, xolair, xopenex inhailer and neb, pulmacort neb, Ipratrapium Bromide neb, benadryl allergy, prednisone and mucinex. Because of the high prednisone, my blood pressure has increased and now I am on two meds for this...azor and bystolic. Has anyone had anything like this?
