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)?
