new asthma patient-have a question
sistershane posted:
I'm newly diagnosed having asthma-caused likely by 20 years in owning a clleaning service and using cleaning products. I've used masks-but there has been some chemical damage nontheless to my lungs.
I have an-"as needed inhaler" and daily maintenance inhaler.
I've noticed something odd-for me.
I'll eat a heavy meal-and when i sit down to relax later-i feel short of breath, sometimes even faint, and can feel my heartbeat pick up-working harder.
Awful feeling. Can this be due to my asthma?

Hi and welcome to the community.

Asthma meds can cause an increased heart rate.

Acid reflux can also cause similar symptoms. You should discus your symptoms with your doctor.

Please let us know how you are doing.
