i have exercise induced asthma since childhood.there are some realisations i had on my journey towards tackling it.its more of how we shud work on ourself..
the chances of me getting an attack is higher when :
1) i try to breathe with my mouth while exercing-for me the sudden small gushes of air thru mouth brought an attack.so i strictly breathe thru my nose. there wud b times when the air u take in thru nose feels less,so just slow ur exercise till u feel u r at a comfortable breathing rate and up the intensity SLOWLY
2) if i dont warm up properly i surely get one. i guess its the sudden change that trigger my attack.so i try to smooth into my workout with a good 10 or sometimes even 15minutes of warm up so that i donot give my respiratory tract any surprises.
3) i always had this lingering thought that i am going to trigger an attack if i exercise. as u might already know, psychology plays a major part in asthma.so when u start your exercise with the above mentioned points make sure you have your meds at hand so that you can avoid a panic driven attack if at all you get slightly breathless.
knowing that my meds are around always kept me calm and to my surprise, i have stopped getting anymore of EIA.
so you can begin by take a puff or two 10minutes before your warm up in the initial days.slowly u shall realise u dont need that even.just stay calm and let your body take it slow..
oh and by the way once u lose,EIA goes down considerably.so dont worry dear... if i can do it,anyone can.
and yeah i do lots of zumba now :)
