Hi everyone. I have exercise-induced asthma and only use an Albuterol inhaler as needed. I started working out (after probably 14 years of being a couch potato) in Feb. 2009. In Mar 2009, I started walking outside and then in April 2009, I started the C25K running program. I also started training for my very first triathlon so I have been biking and swimming (in an indoor pool).
I primarily only need my inhaler during my running sessions. On occassion, I have also needed it during swims and biking. Otherwise, I am usually able to slow it down in time to prevent any significant attack. Anyways, every morning I wake up feeling like I smoked a pack of cigarettes the day before. For anyone that is an ex-smoker or has gone out to a smoke-filled establishment hopefully knows what I mean. Unfortunately, the feeling doesn't usually go away during the day either.
Anyone else ever feel like this? I was at the doctor a few weeks ago for a physical - it was with the nurse practioner and she didn't seem worried about it. I am just wondering if it is the asthma or maybe from the inhaler or maybe it's allergies?
I would like to hear if anyone else ever experienced this and if you knew what was causing it? I might just go back in and see my DR to talk about it with him??
