I have adult onset asthma, I was 52 when it became a problem, and what I think of as sensitivities rather than true allergies. I have two cats and a husband who smokes and my housekeeping is less than optimal (very very dusty, LOL).

Using my maintenance inhaler properly and not trying to overdo it when I'm doing anything over time (exercise, cleaning, etc.) can help me. I tend to overuse my inhaler but am trying to get myself to just stop and breathe a bit, see if things calm down on their own. I did not have asthma or breathing problems when I was a teen and playing field hockey, etc. but I have always hated running and being out of breath. I am trying to combat that dislike=use inhaler and wait to see if my body can deal with whatever before I immediately think, oh, I need my inhaler.

I usually do the same thing that you do. I have exercise induced asthma. Usually I have to stop and use my inhaler. I am trying to build up the length and intensity of my exercise so I won't have asthma. It has always been better when I am able to breathe through my nose, but since I have allergies it is not always possible.

What are yours?

I find that when my lungs are starting to burn, taking a deep breath and exhaling completely will relieve the pain.

What do you guys do to get through your asthma symptoms while exercising?
