Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out. You likely seem to suffer from extrinsic (allergic) asthma.
I feel that you should do the spirometry or the pulomany function test for the confirmation of asthma.
If thereâs any obstruction in the airways, it will show in the test. Bronchodilators are also given in this test and if thereâs any obstruction in the test and it becomes reversible with the use of the bronchodilators, it is confirmatory of the presence of bronchial asthma.
Please do consult a pulmonologist for the same. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
