I have known that I've had allergies for my entire life, but never knew that I had mild asthma in my small airways until a month and a half ago (which was the first time that I went to an allergy/asthma specialist since 1978). One of the first things that my new allergist said was that the asthma explains why I develop bronchitis just by fitness walking.
I am on a combination of Dulera and Ventolin. Yesterday, I went for my first fitness walk in months. Breathing was definitely easier than it was then, but not as easy as it had been a few years ago (when I'd walk 10 miles a day and then have to stop for a while because of bronchitis).
Of course, right now, I am also taking hydroxyzine - which is helping, too. I walked for two miles yesterday (sneezed twice when passing smokers). I hope to double the miles today, but will let my body decide.
I'm not sure how things can be with asthma and COPD, but perhaps small walks (even in a mall) can help.
