I have just been diagnosed with EAA after being treated in hospital for a month with asthma. Turns out I do not have asthma (kept telling them the inhalers did not work!) and not sure if having EAA is better or not. My son had a pet rabbit for his birthday in August and I have been allergy tested and that came back negative so now the doc thinks I am allergic to the hay we feed the rabbit. I am having more specific allergy tests done so hoping for an answer. Can't believe it has come to this.Only had the rabbit 2 months before I started getting ill. The children have done 99% of the bedding changes and do all the feeding so my exposure has been pretty minimal. I went down with pneumonia last week and have never felt so ill. Back on the steroids for 8 weeks now and hoping to feel better and get back to work next week. My x rays showed the lacy pattern at he bottom of my lungs and I am surprised at the number of non-respiratory docs who have looked at the x rays and said they look normal. To my untrained eye they did not look normal!! Feel in limbo at the mo as niot sure when I will start to feel normal again. I am over the pneumonia now so just need to sort cough and breathlessness out. Amyone have any ideas of time scales? Does this EAA go away or am I being too optimistic? Any ideas welcome. Thanks
