Should i see doctor, mild asthma stymptons for 2 weeks, using saba 2-4 times /day, symptoms only mild so worried i'm wasting docs time?

Should i see doctor, mild asthma stymptons for 2 weeks, using saba 2-4 times /day, symptoms only mild so worried i'm wasting docs time?

Yes: Use of your saba inhaler 2-4x a day for 2 weeks strongly suggests poorly controlled asthma. The key to asthma control is reducing airway inflammation. Sabas only provide symptom relief but do not decrease inflammation. You should be seen by your doctor and possibly be started on asthma anti-inflammatory medication. If you do not seek medical treatment, your mild symptoms may linger for weeks. ...Read more
