Medical Update re: The Cough

I had an appointment on Monday afternoon at the Midcoast Medical Office Building with Dr. Paul LaPrad, my pulmonologist.  Those of you I've spoken with recently know how much I've been struggling with a chronic cough which had also developed into wheezing at night and difficulty sleeping.  We decided to try a new inhaler twice a day for the next month and see if that helps.  I had a breathing test in his office and a chest X-ray at Midcoast Hospital afterwards.  I picked up my inhaler at the pharmacy on my way home and we'll see how this goes.
I'm hopeful that this will help as I do have asthma and have not used an inhaler in quite awhile.
