I joined this team because my asthma has come back. I had it mildly in childhood then very badly in my twenties and almost died from it. Took allergy shots and it completely went away for 30 years.
It started back up again as exercised induced asthma in the cold about 7 years ago. This fall it came back at night. My doc has put me on Symbicort which has worked great. However, my peak flow readings are never anywhere close to predicted normal since I started taking them a few weeks ago. I'm wondering if my doc is going to tell me that I have COPD in addition to asthma on my next visit. I don't smoke, but the history of asthma puts me at greater risk.
I was running regularly over the summer, but essentially stopped in mid-Oct. when the weather got cold and the inhaler wasn't sufficient. I'm working on getting back into running.....but that's for another thread.
