I'd actually be wondering if you're getting enough sugar before a workout?

Generally when I get dizzy and I'm not having an actual attack it's one of two things:
a) I haven't eaten much recently and my blood sugar is low
b) My low blood pressure is kicking in.

Next time you see your Dr. make sure you write down your blood pressure. If it's on the low end (eg. below 110 over 70), you might find that you get dizzy or even pass out following strenuous exercise. Also, make sure to check your iron levels! Both of these things can be hiding behind your asthma!

Your body might also be learning to cope with not having an asthma attack, but the two I mentioned are more likely to have something to do with your dizzyness outside of an asthma attack!

Hey all,

ever since the weather started warming up I've felt much better--I've used my rescue inhaler once or twice since Feb (including an odd incident where I had an asthma attack AFTER taking my advair) However, I've noticed that about half way through any cardio excercise I feel lightheaded and have to stop. It's almost like I'm getting too much oxygen, which doesn't make sense? Has this happened to anyone else?

My family doctor is switching asthma docs on me because he's not happy with the quality of care so I'm waiting for my first appointment in May.
