Severe Asthma; only getting worse
I had asthma since I was a baby and had my first asthma attack at age 3. I used to take a daily inhaler 2 puffs twice a day, as well as an emergency inhaler when needed. In early 2018 when I was 15, I stopped taking my daily inhaler and only my emergency one as needed. By the same time next year, I had to yawn to breathe and verbally make a sound to catch a full breath. From 2019-2020 I was in and out of hospitals, took countless pulmonary tests, and had an endoscopy which showed nothing, besides the IBS I've always had. After these hospital visits and a visit to a speech/vocal therapist to help with the yawning and breath training, I was perscribed a nebulizer which I now use when I'm sick and wheezing. In 2021, I started smoking weed and vaping and it didn't get worse, I feel like I've been at rock bottom since 2020 and the only worse option is to stop breathing completely. Currently, I don't really smoke often anymore (at one point it was everyday) and I've been on-and-off vaping (trying to quit), and it hasn't gotten better. I don't know what to do, it gets extremely disheartening to think about the fact that I struggle with a function so basic as breathing and I hate having my mouth agape, stimulating a yawn in class trying to catch a breath; it's ruining my self esteem and my happiness.
In all, is there anything that can be causing this that I haven't thought of? Lungs, my asthma and my stomach (IBS & endoscopy) have all been checked to no avail. On paper, I should be able to breath and no one can tell me why I can't.
