My allergy shots help me quite a bit in dealing better with mine. The spring is the hardest on me with allergies and asthma so I have to take them sometimes weekly but they have helped keep me from getting so sick all the time.

Thanks for the welcome and the advice! I know it's going to be hard getting adjusted to this. Especially now, because I love having the windows open and airing out the house in this kind of weather. I've been following my doctor's advice and so far, so good, but I've had to slow down alot and really reduce my cardio. I'm still accepting that and trying not to go overboard because I don't want another bad attack. I'll keep an eye on the pollen report too. Thanks!

Welome to the team! I was diagnosed with asthma as an adult, too. It has been hard to adjust in the last 4 years but each bought of problems teaches me a lesson and the importance of following me doctor's advice. I don't open my windows in the spring anymore because I develop asthmatice bronchitis if I do. It is worth the AC bill not to be sick. Watching the local pollen report helps me determine when I can air out the house but it is never for long. I also use proair 15 minutes before exercising. Good luck!

I'm Healthy, I'm Happy, I'm Fit!

Congrats on losing 33lbs! Have the allergy shots also had a positive effect on your asthma?

I usually don't open my windows and turn my AC on early because of my allergies and how they affect my asthma. The spring is very hard on mine with all the pollen. I also take allergy shots too so I can handle it better. I will also take a puff off my relief inhaler before I workout and it helps me endure it better.

Yes, I also have many allergies. If it grows I am probably allergic to it. Also allergic to dust. I use allergy medication if it gets to bad. Air conditioning should help to filter out the polen, make sure to clean you filter.

Allergies tend to really drain away my energy...again not good if trying to lose weight.

Thanks! My doctor explained that to me a couple of weeks ago. It's still taking some getting used to. Do you notice if working out is more difficult when your allergies are acting up? It's warming up really quickly and we already have windows open, and I'm thinking pollen will be a problem. Running the air conditioner would probably be best when I'm exercising.

Do you know to use your inhalers before working out. It really helps. I have had asthma most of my life, and yes it can be scary.

Hi everyone! I'm new to SparkPeople and to WOWA. I'm also new to having asthma. I was diagnosed several years ago as an adult, but didn't have my first serious attack until 2 weeks ago, and my workouts just aren't the same. I have to change my approach to cardio and get used to not being able to work as hard. Its scary not being able to breathe, and frustrating when you're trying to lose weight. I'm looking forward to getting some insight from all of you who have experience with this. Thanks!
