At last a diagnosis

….that makes sense.

Yes, I have asthma (mild) but in addition I probably have hypersensitivity pneumonitis.  That comes from having kept chickens and probably also goats.  Not everyone is that sensitive to all the stuff floating around but apparently I am.

The symptoms the  specialists wanted me to have I did not have, ie wheezing for example.  However the symptoms I do have line up and the fact that both prednesone and oxygen have helped point to this.

Doc has scheduled an oxygen eval here at the house in a couple of weeks and we’ll go from there.

Nope…Aliens didn’t invade and cause this,

just my love of farming!
