Hi, I'm Celia. I've had asthma all my life caused by allergies but was never diagnosed until a few years ago. Now I take allergy meds, advair, albuterol rarely, flonase. I get very tired after a week of every other day workouts that the next week I have to take a few days in a row off to recuperate. I'm 52 so I thought it was the sedentary life I had been living but now I believe my asthma has allot to do with it. I'm glad to find a team that might help me deal with my issues with exercise.

Namaste
Celia

Hi all,

I'm new to the team. I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma some time ago. It's been a struggle dealing with... they tried me on Albuterol, Intal, and Advair. The only one that's made a bit of difference has been the Albuterol.

My question is how do you keep your motivation? I try to work out but get so discouraged when I start being unable to breathe. I feel like my throat is closing off and someone is sitting on my lungs after about 5 minutes of running. I want to do more, but it's so hard to stay motivated when the slightest bit of cardio feels like torture. Even with my inhaler, there's only a moderate difference. I don't have insurance right now so I can't afford to go to the dr or experiment with my inhaler.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
