From this study (5 months ago):
Believe my problem is with Formoterol. Symptoms (breathlessness and being winded with minimal exertion) first noted three years ago after taking Foradil aerolizer (formoterol) and asmanex twisthaler for one to two years. Health, stamina gradually dimished to shortness of breath with minimal exertion. One - two years ago prescription changed to symbicort. health improved dramatically for approximately two months. Began walking one to two miles a day. Now back to being winded with minimal exertion. Health seems better until I take my symbicort. Spiriva seems to counter act breathlessness at morning when I take with symbicort. At evening with no Spiriva, breathlessness prevails. using Spiriva twice daily works but doctor says no.

2011 ill 10 days high fever diagnosed( no test) Mono sent home treatment amoxicillin still in pain and unwell 3months later test and diagnosis Lyme treatment Doxicyclin 14 days some improvement but not recovered diagnosis muscle cramps, joint pain, swelling legs,Rosacea doxy again retested April Lyme positive sent to Infectious Disease specialist told not Lyme (no test) sent to Rhuematology multiple tests, no positive results for anything tested. And on and on and on! Last seen dermatologist diagnosis post inflammatory skin changes. Feels I had a rash over 2/3 of my torso and thighs that I did not notice because I am of a darker skin tone. Supports diagnosis of Rosacea, feels much of the problems may be caused by Lyme which I do not have a diagnosis for.
