Asthma? Allergies? I don’t know what’s wrong tell me your story

Posted by @jac41767, Sun, Sep 9 6:40pm

Since June I have been having dizziness, feeling faint, sinus congestion, trouble breathing through my nose and post nasal drip with on and off throat swelling. I ignored it bc I figured it was allergies( never been diagnosed) since I heard on tv people were developing this more and more every year. Then about a month ago I have developed trouble breathing and asthma like symptoms that are constant! I get no relief at all! Night day all the time. I went to the ER. They did a chest X-ray, ct scan, blood work. Everything is normal. They gave me a rescue inhaler and told me to follow up with doctor. The doctor told me I had bronchitis and to follow up. It has now been a month with no improvement. They are doing a pulmonary function test and referred me to a allergist. Has anyone had these symptoms? Tell me your stories and solutions! Give me some hope here because right now I’m feeling pretty hopeless and I feel like I’m never going to breath normal again!

Hello @jac41767, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm glad you posted this and so sorry you are feeling hopeless.

Did your doctor order any scans? or send you to an ENT? When do you see the allergist?

Hi Jamie, thanks! Like I said the ed did a few tests that came back normal and now I have a pft on Tuesday and I see the allergist tomorrow. No referral to ENT. Do they handle breathing issues?
