    Baffling happening w/asthma
    ziondaughter2 posted:
    I have had the flu/cold the last few days. I cannot believe that I do not have my asthma w/flu. What has happened do you think? I had asthma from early childhood until I was about 21. It disappeared until about 6 years ago when it reappeared. I am now 63.

    Please let me know your opinion, please. Thanks.

    A couple of thoughts:

    1) You have been very agressive about managing your symptoms and kept things under control preventing a flare.

    2) Just wait a little longer. Sorry, but if you have only had the flu/cold 2 - 3 days, your flare could still be coming.

    Praying you feel better soon.
