i tried advair, that purple inhaler disk. that was great. unfortunatly it's expensive, even if you have insurance. it depends on your situation.

I was having increased asthma this spring that I hadn't really had trouble for years so I asked to try singulair which has turned out to work really well for me. I take it at bedtime and since I started haven't woken up with asthma issues. In fact I have only had to use the relief inhaler a couple of times since starting the singulair and before I started this spring I was using the relief inhaler at least twice a day. I know singulair doesn't work for everyone but it has been great to me. Good luck.

I, too, have allergy induced asthma, and I can attest to the fact that my allergies have changed over the years. Well, maybe not so much changed, as increased. Things that never used to bother me, now are triggers to major asthmatic episodes that keep me down for days.
You might try talking to your doctor about having another allergy test run, so they can assess whether there are more allergies (or different ones) that need addressing.

That might be why you wake up at night. Sometimes I don't have symptoms until the next day. It was suggested to me to look back for 48 hours and write down everything I did (I don't have food allergies). Then see if there is a pattern. I am allergic to grass and the last time I mowed the grass, it was late that evening before my symptoms appeared. I have learned that If am a bit more tired during my work out, two days later I have an asthma flair. I discovered this by looking at what I was doing those 2 days before.

Whatever theings are true, whatever things are noble whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.

allergies can change over the years. you might not have had outdoor allergies before and have developed them recently. if you usually run in an area or time when your allergies arn;t triggered then that could help. good luck with the doctor!

I usually do my heavy exercising inside with my air conditioner to help me with my breathing. I also take my allergy shots weekly to help me with allergies as well. I am really struggling with my breathing here lately and using the relief quite a bit.

Thanks for your reply. I am always exercising in the morning when the air is cool here and damper than at any other time of day.

Sometiems when I walk outside I don't have any problems either and sometimes I do. Sometimes it might depend on what time of the day your doing your exercise maybe. I do mine lateer in the night and just depends for me. I also am allergy induced asthma and the humidity is my worst enemy. Your doctor shoud be able to give you answers. Good luck to you.

Hi all. I could use your ideas.

I was diagnosed with allergy induced asthma when I was 12; my allergies were tested and seemed to be mostly foods, smoke and feathers and we got rid of the family's budgie. I was never athletic, but it didn't seem that excercise triggered me. By the time I was an adult, my symptoms were all but gone, excepting smoke. Now I'm 40 and my asthma has bothered me off and on for six years.

It seems to come on in the spring or summer, so I assumed that my symptoms are brought on by grass, trees or blossoms. I cough at home, at work, in the car and at shops around town. I wake up a few times per night coughing and need my puffer. However -- and this is the stumper -- I can run or do a swift walk outside and it makes me feel better. I run 5K once per week.

Does this sound odd to you? Shouldn't seasonal allergies be made worse by exercising outside? Do you have clues to what my allergies might be now? I'd really like to figure this out so that my symptoms and the meds I have to take can be reduced by eliminating allergens.

Thanks in advance for your ideas. I'll be going back to the doc in two weeks.

...Pam
