Hi, my daughter was diagnosed with having asthma at four months old after a bad case of bronchiolitus left her with a persistent wheeze. Shes under the asthma clinic and about a year ago they found a heart murmur which she had checked and we were told was an innocent murmur. However as she getting older ive noticed she gets really out of breath to the point where walking up the stairs really wears her out and sometimes she has to stop. Just running for a few seconds affects her immediatley and she breathes really loudly all the time. I was just wondering whether this was normal with asthma, im probably more concerned because when she had her heart scan she had a cold and the pictures weren't clear, she has only been checked for congenital abnormalities and i suppose im trying to find out if this is a normal symptom of asthma or some underlying heart or lung condition, thanks x
