Can medical intervention help me manage breathing problems?

ANSWER

So often, people seek medical intervention only after they have had breathing problems for weeks to months. Often by the time the medications are started, damage has occurred that takes more time to heal. An accurate diagnosis is important before you can treat and prevent breathing problems. Each of us is different. Prevention and treatment measures can dramatically help relieve and possibly end the breathing problems you experience.
