Asthma and Interstitial lung disease
@jmb73– Good morning. Not being able to control symptoms is very upsetting. Have you been to the doctor or spoken with him recently? Have you discussed this issue? How long have you felt these symptoms?

I see my doc in May but he also works in the ICU so I hope he doesn't cancel. I did ask the PA and she said to use the nebulizer as needed. She said it's recommended use is every 6 hours but she wants me to use it if I have any chest congestion. I do have costochronditis and that causes pain and pressure in my chest. I have had these symptoms for 2 years and the doctors say it shouldn't be costochronditis as it has lasted too long. She said there is no treatment for ILD and to just treat my asthma. She said to not get stressed as it will make it worse. Let's see my son just lost his job and he has 2 kids, the corona virus attacks elderly and people who have asthma. He has asthma. My grandson lost his job and his father might lose his. No stress? Sorry to vent. I am sure every one is going through stuff like this. thanks for your help.
