How many of your children started off with this? Emma was hospitalized at a year old...three times...with this...yet they refused to call it asthma because of the negative impact an asthma diagnosis would bring (ie...being excluded from the armed services, etc.). Since then, maybe once or twice a year, we are in for steroid shots and we keep albuterol on hand...she uses it heavily during the spring and fall (we live in Florida, btw). It seems like it could be allergy related, but the coughing, etc. is serious business. Today alone we have done 3 treatments and she's still coughing that deep cough!
I was just curious. Thank you ladies!
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!
Miguel had bronclities.... They told me that If he got bronclities more then once it was asthma. His old doctor wouldn't diognose it but she gave him a nebulizer and albuterol... If she still has the deep cough after taking as many treatments as posible make an apointment with the dr. She may need somthing daily or allegy medison.... Miguel was really bad at night and descovered it was his pillow...
Marissa was in the hospital with this in Aug 1997, a month before JJ was born so she was 22 months old.
She started off with bronchitis at 2 months old, RSV when she was 14 months old and bronchiolitis when she was 22 months old. Then she got pneumonia at 2.5 years old and the doctor finally diagnosed her.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
I think DS had bronchiolitis 3 times with very little break between before his docs decided to finally call it asthma. With that many treatments and still no improvement, I'd definitely check back in with her doc.
