Problems breathing
An_239859 posted:
Ive been diagnosed with asthma since last year and have been pretty well controlled til the seasons changed. Now that it is getting colder out Im having problems breathing. I am on Xopenex rescue inhaler, have used my nebuelizer, and now on Asmanex but every time I get up to walk around and move I have problems. I seem to be okay as long as I am sitting down relaxing which prevents me from living a life. If anyone has any suggestions on ways to help breathe during the cold weather so I can get back to living a life that would be great!

You should see your asthma doctor right away to determine what's causing your symptoms, and to get appropriate treatment. Since you're an asthma newbie, your asthma meds may need to be tweaked, or perhaps there's something else going on that your doctor can pinpoint and treat. Hope these thoughts help -- take care & good luck. Judy
