Welcome! I truly hope things get better for you. Keep us posted and try walking instead of running.

Greetings Everyone:

Iím fairly seasoned with SP, however Iím new to this team.

I was diagnosed with Exercise/Allergy induced Asthma about 28 years ago during a mountain bike race Ė didnít finish. Needless to say, I think Iíve managed to keep everything under control until this month.

I pride myself in being healthy and fit. However, during the whole month of December Iíve been constantly struggling with being able to breathe. The weather here turned earlier than usual, so Iím blaming that.

Until about 3 weeks ago, I was running almost every day; hiking on the weekends; and organizing and running a race every month. Then I was grounded by my Asthma Doc. Iíve been in to see her at least once each week; sometimes two times during the week. On top of both inhalers (preventive and rescue), she put me on Prednisone over the weekend and Iím taking Singulair; and two different nose sprays.

I was doing pretty good over the weekend Ė rescue inhaler only a couple of times during each day Ė not the usual 6 with a Neb treatment later that night; then I walked into work this morning. Iím pretty sure Iím having serious allergy issues right now, but Doc wonít test me until we have the breathing under control. She has me scheduled to see a Pulmonologist at the end of Jan; I just saw one in Sept and he told me it was definitely my Asthma.

My weight is going up and Iím frustrated to say the least. Iím constantly yawning and fighting for deep breaths. I really want to get back to my cardio and am becoming impatient
