So as we all know G likes to add things to his list of issues lol
Now he has always had issues being that he has a low immunity so when he started getting sick this Winter it was sorta expected iykwim.
Thing is along with ear infections he has had so many chest infections that it almost feels like its been never ending ! He has been on countless antibiotics & he hasnt been over prescribed them as that could really go against him when he truly needs them iykwim so have been keeping them for when he is quite severe.
Our Paed has said he has 'Reactive Airways' whatever that is or I dunno maybe thats nothing I have no clue when it comes to this stuff ( gimme Reflux any day ) & has been holding off calling it Asthma or giving him meds to treat it as such. He is a great Paed so I trust his methods because he doesnt hand out meds like lollies but I am starting to get to the end of my tether.
G is spending hours coughing non-stop & whilst not struggling to breath ( otherwise you would hear me kicking & fighting a hell of a lot louder ! ) he is often vomitting at least 5 times a day because he also has a great gag reflex still due to Reflux but its also listening to him coughing & coughing & coughing thats doing my head in. Its often keeping him awake because he just cant sleep & all the steps we seem to take forward in getting him sleeping for periods of 4hrs or more are dashed as soon as this cough builds in strength again ! When it does go away he doesnt cough through the day at all but will have a few coughing 'fits' of a nite but thats when he is doing great iykwim but most of the last 4mths have been spent like the last few nites with a barking heavy cough all day & nite with 'fits' lasting upwards of 30mins.
I am going to demand Asthma meds tomorrow .... Will it be worthwhile or am I just holding out hope ????
