Turns out I may have asthma. This is what my monthly lung function tests are now showing. We are going to wait another month and test again, and if the results still show signs of it, we have a couple of options. We can either start treating it right away with inhalers, or I can have a more detailed lung test done at the University to confirm the suspicions. Heck, I will take asthma over vasculitis any day.

Back in my uni days, I was diagnosed with seasonal asthma and had inhalers, but it was never horrible, and just kinda went away on its own. And even now, I don’t actually feel any symptoms. Because of that, I questioned if I needed to even treat it. But my lung doc explained that if it goes untreated, it can cause long term damage from scarring and become worse. So, I guess we should treat it.

Other than that, the tapering of the prednisone will continue, and I will see my lung doc again in a month.

That’s it. These health updates are getting quite boring now. But maybe that is a good thing. 🙂
