NWR: Anyone here have a child with asthma?

I'm starting to go through some things with my daughter having breathing difficulties and I was just wondering if anyone here had already gone through the process of getting their child diagnosed with asthma.

I am a nurse and so have a son that has asthma. He was diagnosed at 2. He is now 20. Its easy to ha e them diagnosed. They run some very simple breathing tests

I'm glad to hear that the testing is simple. We saw a different doctor yesterday and he is giving us a referral to see a lung specialist.

The other doctor that we saw about two weeks ago told us that there wasn't a test to definitely tell whether someone had asthma or not. That didn't seem right to me but I thought well I'm not a doctor so this must be true. So I was anticipating (and dreading) a long road ahead of us to get her correctly diagnosed.
