Ok before I get in trouble I have searched this topic so please bear with me!! My question is this. I recently had a bad viral infection. The result of which is a cough that wont go away. Been to docs today and he thinks its asthma. I don't think it is. He has prescribed me an inhaler which I have no intention of getting. The doc told me to come back in a week after using the inhaler. Again Im not going back. I did ask him not to put asthma on my records and told him why but not sure if he listened. My reasons for thinking its not asthma, bearing in mind Im no doc, are that I have never smoked, am reasonably fit, suffer from hay fever occasionally and have never had anything like this before. This all started with a bad cold that turned out to be viral. If anything, I think Im still suffering from the repercussions of this. I did a peak flow test at the docs and got above average for my height. Im getting my fitness back up to standard as since I have been ill I did very little exercise. I cough when exercising (cardio) but don't wheeze. What are my chances of getting into the TA? I know it says asthma or asthma symptoms (including treatment )within 4 years, but if I don't take the treatment am I ok? Opinions or experiences please.
