Hello my name is Sarah. A little about myself. I was diagnosed with in simple terms E-Asthma 4 years ago. It has been a rough road with it over the years. Is there anyone else in this group who have been diagnosed with this?
I have Asthma but I don’t know what E-Asthma?
E-Asthma is also known as Eosinophilic.
Yes,I was dignosed around 4 yrs. ago also. I totally know what you mean about a rough rd. I’ve been there myself with 1 asthma attact right after another and you never know whats going to trigger your asthma. I’ve been using my breathing machine at home but if that doesnt take care of it right away then I’ll get on my C-Pap and let it breath for me for awhile so my lungs can rest and I’ve found out that helps me. My lungs dont tire out so easy. It doesnt stop the attacks from coming or how sever the atracks are it just helps my lungs not tire out so easy! I pray this helps you in any way. If you have learned any new ideas please let me know.
E-Asthma is an uncontrolled asthma. You can be on all kinds of meds,steriods,breathing machine,Etc. and still have several.m bad asthma attacks
Thats what shes talking about. She just shorten it
Your welcome. Thats what were here for on this site to help others.
I have Asthma and Chronic Bronchitis at the same time. I also have Sleep Apnea and use a CPAP machine. Went into the insurance doctor’s office for a check up and he said I have The beginning of COPD. Should I be going to a lung Specialist? I must get a referral from my GP.
I have been told that Eosinophilic and COPD have symptoms that mirror each other. Cause for years I thought I had COPD I had all the same symptoms. But then my pulmonologist did a blood test and we found out I had Eosinophilic asthma.
I didn’t know about the blood test that we could take to tell what kind of Asthma you have.
Yeah either did I. I didn’t even know that asthma had sub categories.
I have e-asthma and started Fasenra injections 5 months ago. Haven’t had an asthma attack since.
I have heard great things about the injections. My Dr is going to try and see if my insurance will cover it.
All the best.
