The long journey

My problem began from my adolescence. Cold, and coughing. I thought it was rhinitis but never had a sure cure until almost 40 years after when I was told the cause is histamine and started antihistamine treatment.

Then I started having asthma attacks and the pump was added to my medication. A lung test showed up negative. I then was attacked with chronic cough with irritation in my throat. A visit to my doctor and narration of my problem made my doctor conclude that my case is COPD. I asked her what the prognosis is rheumatism. But she calmed my fears and put me on a mucolytic medication. I am now human again after years of suffering.

Forum members do think my problem has at last come to an end. Your comments will be much appreciated. A wealth of health is a necessity.
