Maybe an air purifier would help too. Welcome and good luck to you.

I notice all these free masks around for the H1N1 flu so I was thinking of grabbing a few to use while I clean out my junk room. My asthma acts up so much when I work in there. Also an air filter might help with that dust.

I am a respiratory therapist. Keep track of your asthma by using a peak flow meter. This will allow you to see if your breathing is getting worse, before it becomes an issue. This should help, but always keep in contact with your doctor.

For I know the plans that I have for you, "declares the LORD,"plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11.

Hey everybody, I am new to having asthma, at least controlling it (I guess I've had it for years!). I would always tend to cough a lot and have very strong coughs that sounded like I was a smoker (I am not a smoker btw).

I did get an inhaler for exercised induced asthma a year ago, but still couldn't push my runs farther than 2 miles. I went to a doctor about allergies and she said my numbers were about 20% lower than normal and she put me on meds. I've been getting better and better and I ran my 1st 5K in August!

I really wanted to join this team because controlling asthma is really new for me and sometimes I don't even know when I am having symptoms. I always thought asthma just meant you couldn't breath. Last night I was coughing a lot and I think it could be due to packing and moving to a new house because of all the dust and remodeling that is being done in the new house. Unfortunately the remodeling is not going to be done by the time we move in and I think I will have more symptoms. Any suggestions about what I can do to prevent some of my symptoms (especially the coughing that interferes with my exercise)?
