Allergy and FENO test

I have dust and cold allergy for the past 2 years. Recently I was diagnosed with allergic bronchitis and took medicines for that. I have frequent sneezing,cough and breathing trouble. My doctor has prescribed one inhaler and one nasal spray. But I have heard a lot about the side effects of these sprays and inhalers and I dont want to use it. Today as prescribed by the doc I had underwent a Spirometry and FENO test. The FENO test result was 107ppb. Is this value really high? I have read this test is a diagnosis for asthma. But i don't have that much breathing trouble like an asthmatic patient. I feel a heaviness in the center of my chest and after too much of sneezing feel out of breath and have shallow breathing.
Could you please guide me on how I can go ahead getting the right treatment?
