New to the fight
Hello. I am a 35 yr old male and have been battling asthma symptoms for about 2 yrs. I finally gave up on my allergist except for the allergy shots. I went to see a pulmonologist and had all the stuff like PFT's, Oximetry, Blood tests, etc. and my Pulmonologist told me I did not have asthma. My blood work showed high numbers for CPN and Mycoplasma and they told me I have had them for a while. I started out taking azithromycin 250mg. daily and have taken about 9 months all together.
Every once in a while I have a flare in breathing and start to use my inhaler a little bit more and my doctor will add something in along the way. Once he added Doxycycline in for a month and other time he has given me things like a med-pack, steroid shot, and added in ceftin and levaquin as well. I will gor for a while feeling well and not using an inhaler at all and the every once in a while here comes a flare up. Recently I have also had some loss of sensation and burning in my toes and ball of my feet and I am going to do an EMG soon.
I am just wondering if I'm doing this right and making progress because every time I go back to the pulmonologist I feel like I've done something wrong or that I should be over it by now, etc.
I'm thinking about adding in some supplementation if it would be beneficial to speed up the process. I would like to hear from anyone. Thanks.
