So, I finally went to the doctor at Lolly Kemp out in Independence. He confirmed that it was asthma and gave me inhalers with steroids. It is working out great and my health is finally improving. Woohoo! Only after 8 months of suffering! But, now that I know what several other doctors have failed to discover about my winter illness, I can hopefully get this easily licked when it crops up in the future. And it will.
