The Benefit Of Using An Inhaler

My name is Usman Kureshi and I am an asthmatic. When I first started experiencing my asthma symptoms, I did not pay much attention to it. I did not realize that the condition that I had was asthma. In addition to my other symptoms, I started to feel more and more breathless after conducting my day-to-day activities.

It was quite unbearable but I still didn't think it was important to go to the doctor. Finally, one day, my parents told me that they couldn't bear to see me suffer and promised that they would accompany me to the doctor.

A few days later, my parents came with me to visit a chest specialist. He conducted a basic check-up and suggested that I go for a Pulmonary Function Test (PFT). When the test reports came back, the doctor confirmed that I had asthma. All of my worries were short-lived, however, the doctor was quick to reassure me. He explained in detail, the various facets of my condition and informed me that with the right treatment, everything should be alright. He prescribed an inhaler for me, answered all my queries about it and showed me how to use it.

It has been 10 months since then and with the help of my inhaler, I have managed to control my asthma symptoms. I no longer find it difficult to conduct my daily tasks and it just goes to assure me that with the right treatment, anything is possible.
