My asthma is normally controlled by Advair 50/100 once a day. Now I'm on my 3rd bout of prednisone. When Md's listen to my lungs I'm not wheezing, and the breathing tests are clear. Yet, I'm short of breath, my right lung burns, and on my right side of my chest, front and back hurt and my muscles are tender to the touch on my back. My chest feels so tight and constricted and it's hard to breath. I'm using 500 Advaire twice a day, Singulair, and use my emergency inhaler about 6X a day, as well as being on Prednisone. I'm seeing a Pulmonologist Dec. 12, but I'm scared in the meantime. Does anyone have any suggestions?
