Just back from doctor office and two nebulizer treatments. Feeling real jittery from the treatments, but breathing much better. It seems dust is a real bad trigger for me,so I might invest in some of the swiffer products that trap the dust, without sending it flying everywhere.

I am allergic to dust mites which also will trigger my asthma sometimes if the dust is real think outside and I live on a gravel road. Also bleach will trigger me sometimes and it will also trigger me a migraine. I wish you all the best and know exactly how you feel. I can't count how many times I have ended in ER for hours with asthma attacks because they send my heart rate out the roof.

Thanks for the comments and advice. I think some of what triggered it was a lot of cleaning we had to do in our store for a supervisor's visit. It was very dusty cleaning, and I didn't have any masks with me. I have them now, and won't leave home without one. I tend to think of myself as indestructible until something like this happens. This episode has brought me up short and made me pay attention.
I do have a recommendation for a holistic doctor (female), but I have to get into contact with her.
Again, thanks for the welcome and the advice.

welcome.i agree with kate you should try and find out what the trigger was.also change your dr as soon as you can,it makes all the differance.

spent all last night at the hospital with the six year old.had a bad asthma attack and the rectedelt didn磘 kick in for some reason.after oxygen and a needle he is alright now,still a bit wheezy and very knocked out.he is back on peridison again,along with his other meds.just as he got rid of the last puffiness from the peridison.

wont be around much today because of it all.son is sleeping it off at the moment but keeping computer open so when i have time can go straight on.my son磗 trigger was the sudden and complete change in the weather.

Welcome! Do you happen to know what set off your asthma? I too had an episode on the Weekend but have not managed to clean my house! There are a lot of asthmatics having issues now - I guess because of the pollen. If you can remember what you did for the two days before your attack you may find out just what the trigger is. I haven't had asthma all that long about 3 years. I have found this site to be wonderful. Call the hospital and ask the nurses who they recommend. You might also post something on a sparkteam website for your city and see if someone can recommend a doc for you. Let us know how we can help you. Praying for you!

Hi everybody!
I'm new to this team, and just stopped by to ask for a little extra support.
I've had asthma for years, and it has mostly stayed in control with a rescue inhaler, and occasional supplements of steroids. In the past year, they put me on advair, as well as on my rescue inhaler.
This past Saturday I spent in the ER with the first major asthma episode in many years (over 20). It was scary. I was at work and barely made it through my shift with someone else's help. I have a follow-up tomorrow, but the doctor I have right now tends to be dismissive when he sees an obese female in his exam room. Looking for a new doc, but need some backbone for tomorrow's visit.
Past few days have been difficult, but managed to get most of my house clean today, and finish a few loads of laundry.
Would appreciate any support. Thanks.

I usually do quite a bit of my exercise inside under the air conditioner or in front of a fan blowing high on me. That helps me control my breathing better.

Glad you went to the doctor and got straightened out. Asthma I think is one of the tougher things to treat in my book and has the most complications with it as for meds with side effects or at least in me there are a ton. I have to watch every other med I take to make sure it won't make the asthma worse. I pray you get better wuickly Kate and get back to your normal self. I am doing pretty good here lately but the rain that moved in yesterday set me back some. It's still raining here today and supposed to rain off and on for the next few days. Take care ladies and breathe easy.

Okay so I went to the doc today for my planned physical and she sent me down the hall to pulmonology. I now am on Symbicort, prednisone and all the other tons of stuff I take for allergies. Still not feeling very well. Just so tired as sleeping is difficult because of the coughing. Got a polite lecture. I have to accept the fact that I will need to always take a controller medicine. I have been in denial about the whole asthma thing anyway. They were at least kind to me and explained it to me in away that made sense. I am not going to let this get the best of me! After all, I have a 13 week fitness streak going!

I give my son a puff off of his when his coughing is real bad and it helps to settle the cough right down. You might try it and see if it helps because it does him.

I usuallly get that first. But this time it is mostly a cough. My husband want me to use my inhaler when I am like this but I don't know if I am suppose to with just a cough. I can breath fine just my peak flow says that I am restricted.

Very rare do I use a peak flow meter. I can tell when I start having problems because my chest gets tight as a drum and have problems getting a good breath. My allergist treats my asthma as well so when I get bad I go see him. I usually use mine when I feel the weight on my chest or chest tightness.

Funny I don't have spring allergies so having trouble now is weird to me. I can't believe how fast this came on. Even my husband had trouble Friday. Of course he was better by yesterday. I had a speaking engagement on Saturday about 190 miles from home and he was nice enough to drop everything to take me as I surely could not have down that. While speaking my voice was so shaking it sounded as though I was going to cry any minute. I guess the albuterol did that. I used it about an hour before I spoke. Today I have been in bed sleeping a lot. I think I may have bronchitis now. Tomorrow I have my physical scheduled - how about that for timing. Although my primary doesn't treat my asthma soooo we shall see.
My peak flows continue to fall. Do you use your inhaler regularly when your numbers are in the yellow zone?

I think things got worked out with the kids but the teacher will probably be a different story. I got him some meds to help him sleep anyway and so far they are doing ok.
I agree with you about checking your inhalers and try to do mine every 3 to 4 months to make sure they are in date. I use mine quite frequently in the spring due to being allergic to all sorts of things and had to use it quite a bit a few weeks back. They baby has dropped some now so that really helps about my breathing and makes it a little easier. Mikayla has not complained with hers yet. I hope you all have a breath easy day.

you brought up a very good point kate we should all be looking now carefully at our inhalers and double checking

1# that they are not out of date

2# that there is still some medicament in them.

i know at this time inconguntion with the hayfever time all our asthma磗 have got worsre.was up all night with the baby again he seem to be having the most trouble breathing though our six year old is bad as well.but it somehow seems worse on a baby well they are so small and helpless.he is 5 months old today and already on sulbutomol.so is life sometimes as as the dr say磗 i should be use to it from the other kids.to be honest i don磘 think it is something you would ever get use to because each time they are ill it catches your heart.anyway hope every one does the above checks.

cherly good luck at the principal hope it brings the results you want.

everybody have a nice sunday.the sun is shining here.

I am having trouble with asthma today. Having a hard time getting a deep breath and now have a dry cough. I checked my peak flows and they are down about 40 but still in the green zone. 20 away from my yellow zone.

thanks for asking about my friend. She came home from rehab today. 24 days after having this event. She has short term memory issues and is having to rehab her fine motor skills. But she overachieved in every area so they released her. Still a long road ahead. I haven't had the heart to ask if they know what brought it on. I do know her rescue inhaler did not work. I suspect that it may have been expired.

Glad to see your doing well Kate and wish you all the best. I found out yesterday that little one weighs approximately 3lb 10ozs and will have a non-stress test run in a couple of weeks. Struggling with my temper today over Christopher teacher treating him bad so not been a good day for me. Glad to see things are working well for you.

I also hope you get to feeling better soon. I have just been struggling to catch my breath with being 30 weeks pregnant and also with allergies outside hurting me as well. It won't be long for me now so I just have to have patience. Take care all.

I think I am back with the living now,, started out with pneumonia, strep throat, URI virus sinus infection,,, took meds for all that, but did not get better, bedridden for two weeks, now I have the sinus infection, asthmatic bronchitis.
so tired of breathing!!
On a different antibiotic, new coughing meds to stem the asthma attacks, but it is just hanging in there to weaken me!!
I am blessed to be up and out of bed and drinking that water, but exercise is out of the question!! Just sitting in a chair is a major feat!
My daughter had a milder form of it a week before mine started,(three weeks ago) is better now, Thank God.

I am not doing well today and have the stomach virus of throwing up all night so pretty drained right now. It set me down almost 8 to 10 pounds and feeling very weak that's for sure. I also have to take Christopher tomorrow for a test so I must get better.

Thanks for the support!

Hey everyone! Hope all is well today. I'm not doing ver well so far today. I overslept and missed my exercise program this morning. Then for breakfast I had a tv dinner and a soda. I really need to get my butt back on track. I'm going to try to do a lot better for the rest of the day on my meals and I'm going to do an exercise program this evening. Hope I can stick to that plan for today and start off better tomorrow.

Hey everyone! How's it going? It's been a good while since I've been on here. Life situations and being sick sure do take time away from things. Now that those things are over with, for now at least, I'm back and ready to beging again. I sure could use some motivation to help get me back on track though, so please feel free to offer some. Hope all is well with everyone and hope everyone has a fantastic week.

Good to see you Karen and hope the family gets back to normal. I have been sneezing quite a bit myself and that is rough on me and it always makes the nost bleed being pregnant. I have had to make a make shift belly band from and ace bandage to help me with carrying the baby. We don't have any maternity stores around here to bhy then from so I have to make sure with what I can. We got some things fixed on the house yesterday so I was thrilled about that as well but this afternoon we are supposed to get some storms and rain so I hope it doesn't get bad.
I hope you both have a wonderful day and yeah it's almost the weekend.

Well I have got my kids once again and trying to get their homework and test studying done for the night. With our daughter it's like pulling teeth to get her to do what she needs to do and with him as well. I know they are just ready for the school year to be over and frankly I am as well but they still have to make the grades.
Greg, my hubby, was also upset over the loss by the Cardinals last night. He is ready for tonight game now with hopes they can pull off a win. I did get a nap in today but sometimes after a nap I feel worse than if I had just stayed awake.
Being pregnant I have really had to watch what I eat as well but not undereating but with overeating especially now. I am getting down to my final months and the eating has increased extremely bad. I usually drink quite a bit of water due to braxton hicks contraction so I haven't been having a problem there. Good luck with reaching your goals and sure things will get better when it gets warmer outside.

I know that is what is scaring me.

I hate days that start off like you are having will pray extra for you this day. Can you get a nap in today? I think the weather is definitely adding to it. Then the Cardinals gave away the game last night. Sigh.
I stayed up too late last night and then the phone rang early, so I am tired today.

Just checked my reports for the last month. I have stayed under my calorie goals but I have had too many days that I have not eaten enough. I still have so much to learn. I struggle with the water intake too. Thankfully, I only have to worry about today's goals because I can't change yesterdays. emoticon

You would think there would be something more especially if she only has mild asthma. I have had it since 2002 and been to the hospital several times but never that bad. I will continue to pray God will heal her Kate. This morning for me is already starting off rough. Kids are bickering pretty bad and driving me nuts already. It's just hard for me to get motivated due to I have a hard time sleeping as it is then when they start it only makes it harder on me. Already ready to scream and it's not even 7 here. Take care and have a good day.

I don't really know and don't know if we will ever know. they ruled out stroke and heart attack. She is out of ICU now but has such a long road ahead.

That is scary and sending prayers for her that she will make a full recovery. The toes are a good sign and sure the rest will come back with time. Do you think something else might have happened along in conjuction with the asthma attack?

Please pray for my friend who had an acute asthma attack. Her rescue inhaler did not help, she stopped breathing, was without oxygen for 20 minutes! The good news is she has regained consciousness and is off the vent. She can wiggle her toes but no arm movements yet. This is so very scary as she only has mild asthma. I guess there is no such thing!!

Believe it or not this simple advice has helped me a great deal. Every night before I go to bed I brush my hair. The allergist told me that would get the pollen out of my hair so I wasn't breathing it all night long. Does your son use his inhaler 30 minutes before exercise? Wishing you the best and welcome to our team

Hi everyone, I've been absent for a while. I have a couple concerts I'm going to in June plus a family trip to a water park so I'm re-motivated.

I'm having a little flare up of the asthma so I'm taking it a little easy right now, just doing 30 mins of cardio instead of my usual 60 mins.

My little guy (middle child-4 yrs old) had an asthma flare up this weekend. He starts soccer practice tonight, this is his first year playing. I'm a little nervous about the breathing. I'll probably give him a treatment before practice just in case.

congratulations on the pregnancy i hope all goes well for you.my son is on medication every day he has broncle asthma as well as allergies so like you his asthma is always worse at this time of year.he is also on steriod tablets on top of his normal medication at the moment and the specialist say磗 if his lung funtion doesn磘 improve at the moment he has to be hospitalised again which we don磘 want.at the moment he see the normal pedatrician about 1 time a week and the lung specialist every 8 weeks.it used to be every 12 weeks but the last two times because of the results of the lung funtion it is down to 8 weeks.we do every thing the specialist says but it doesn磘 seem to help much.we have got rid of all the carpets his soft toys etc.we have different clothes for him to wear inside than outside he takes his medicament regually and we are very careful with his diet.he has a very limited life for a 6 year old and as you say it is harder when it hits your children.up to now he has been hospitalised 27 times.by that i mean for more than a week at a time.i just hope the baby is not going to be as bad as my oldest,he is 4 months at the moment.the 3 yr old has only been hospitalised 5 times with lung infections etc.

Hello and welcome to the team Karen. I have an 8 yr old daughter who has asthma only when she exercises and has problems with PE. She uses her relief inhaler sometimes but not all the time. I also have asthma but is allergy induced and get pretty severe for me right now during spring. I also doesn't help that I am 7 months pregnant and hard to breath as well. I take allergy shots and that has help improve my asthma qtite a bit as also has losing some weight. He might try taking his relief inhaler before a workout and see if that would help him out some. Talk to your doctor and see what he thinks and I wish you all the best at finding a solution. It's so much tougher when it's your kids than just yourself.

hi i am karen,i am new to the group and have not got round to introducing myself yet.i am 43 ,married with three boys and we all have asthma the baby being diagnosed with it last week even though he磗 been on the pari boy and sulbutonol since he was 4 weeks old.my asthma is not so bad normally except when pregnant or stressed but my husband and older son磗 is.the main reason i joined this team is to see how others cope with their asthma and sport.as i said my six year old has asthma pretty bad and is having problems keeping up with the other children at sport.the first 10 mins he is ok.then it goes down hill.he wants so much to join the local football team as his 2 best friends have joined but the lung specilist had adviced us against it.he is taken it hard and my heart goes out to him but there is not alot i can do about it.how do other磗 cope with similar problems.other than that, at the moment the diet,healthy lifestyle is just getting into swing.happy aprils fools day everybody.
