Today I went on my first big walk since I started Advair 250/50. ( was just re-diagnosed after 17 years). I'd previously had no rescue inhaler and no other medications.)
I used to have to stop halfway and sit on a bench to catch my breath. This time I decided to walk on further than the bench with the intention of sitting on my way back. I got to the turn point where the trail ends and got a wild hair.
I jogged towards the bench for about 45 seconds. When I finished I was breathing hard, sure, but I wasn't having *any* airway restriction. NONE! Not only that, but when I got to the bench I realized I didn't feel like sitting anymore.
Sure, my walk was only a little over two miles, but it was a success.
I'm so happy to have this under control.
It was comforting to know that if I had an attack that the rescue inhaler was right there in my pocket.
