I wanted to update you all really quick. I'm in the middle of a move to a newer building, and I'm also still coughing like crazy.
My doctor prescribed some new medication. Hopefully it works. I have an appointment with the allergist next Wednesday. I told my doctor that last time I got tested for allergies, the doctor said I wasn't really reacting to any of the things they pricked my skin with. I maybe was mildly allergic to two things. I just tell people I have allergies because it's easier to explain than mystery-cough-that-won't-go-away.
My fiancee was also present in the latest dr's appointment and he really emphasized how I've had breathing problems for the last 2 years and no one's been able to figure it out. Moving to LA has only made things worse.
For some reason, when he explained it, the doctor seemed to really realize that "oh, here's someone who's had all the obvious tests done multiple times and has clearly been misdiagnosed."
So now there's another specialist I have to see. Without getting into too much detail here, I'm very glad that I have a doctor who is helping me figure out what is wrong with my lungs, but the things they potentially would have to do sound unpleasant.
Anywhooo~! I'll be back soon!
