I have been afflicted by Eosinophilic esophagitis for a long time and when I take my flovent inhaler it tends to get a lot more manageable. However, I struggle with regard to what to do when I have an acute attack. Meaning the food is stuck, I can’t swallow even my own saliva and my chest feels like a heart attack. – Other than making myself vomit, I have used the flovent when having an acute attack, and it seems to work. Is this bad? Does it sound right that this can work when experiencing an acute attack (most of what I have read seems to indicate that the flovent is not effective when used as a preventative – but those web sites seem to be geared towards asthma and not EE). Thanks
