Can childhood asthma come back from prolonged stress? Is adrenal fatigue possible? How to strengthen adrenals?
Yes. No. GoodHabits?: Childhood asthma can come back, but if one is no longer a child, then it is just called asthma. The other way of looking at it is: the childhood asthma never completely left.

The symptoms are real; the "disorder" is not real. ...Read more

I'm : I'm sorry you had this bad experience. It sounds like you have more than an adequate history and continuation of symptoms to justify the procedure. If you were dissatisfied with the time spent with your ent, or perceived an unwillingness to offer you a fair explanation of his rationale for not offering surgery as an alternative, i personally would seek a second opinion elsewhere.
