Hi Alison, I understand your frustration. I like to be active and did a century ride with Team in Training. The first time I rode my bike up a long hill I got so nauseous that I pulled over about 2/3 of the way up and puked. My coach, who was great, saw the whole thing from the top of the hill and came down to rescue me. He told me to never push to that point again. I didn't and my training went much better after that. The thing is I'm not a doctor and so if there is something bad going on with your asthma (like it's getting worse) you should really have that checked out with your doctor before you hurt yourself. Good luck, Beej.
A problem I have been having is that when I am struggling to catch my breath, I get very nauseous and occasionally will have to run to the bathroom to vomit. I'm not pushing myself really hard at the gym when this happens, but I was wondering if this is common and if so, why does it happen?
I do use an inhaler about 1/2 hour before I work out and I take Symbicort at night, so I am treating my asthma, but I still have trouble when I try to run, even in short bursts. It's very frustrating not to mention embarrassing when I have to leave in the middle of my workout to run to the bathroom!
