Someone said :
If you had asthma, do you remember how you were diagnosed?
Me, I was told I was borderline asthmatic a few years ago. (got a bronchoscopy)
Now told I am definitely asthmatic, after listening to my upper back. Ten seconds.
I wasn't asked to use a peak flow meter or anything like that.
Was the doctor a bit too hasty in her diagnosis?
What was it like for you, if you were diagnosed with asthma? Did you get a ten minute diagnosis, ten seconds with the stethoscope? Or did you have to use a peak flow meter?
My sister is asthmatic, was in a chest clinic for yonks as a child..
As a result, everytime a member of her family plus children and my children ect had a wheeze, a Doc would diagnose as asthma..
It went beyond a joke, my eldest son was prescribed inhalers during the winter, I took him for a second opinon and Doc told me to throw them away...
Only one nephew has it and only slightly.
