I have had excercise induced asthma for the last 20 years which has always been under control using a blue inhaler (salbutomal) immediatel prior to exercise. In the last 3-4 months the blue inhaler has stopped working and in addition I now have breathing issues when not exercising.
I have been to see a specialist who have taken some allergy tests and also some blood test. At the same time he gave me a red inhaler (which includes a dose of steroids). Whilst the red inhaler has made thing more bearable it is certainly not back to where I was.
The initial allergy test (prick test) showed that I am highly allergic (!!) to just about everything including pollen, horse hair, dust mites etc. etc. but I can't believe that these allregies have suddenly developed.
I have another appointment in three weeks to track progress in the meantime I have had to significantly reduce exercise to where I can now only run at 10-11 kmh (previously 13-14). If I work out too hard then it feels like my lungs have been damaged and takes 2-3 days to recover.
Anyone else had a similar problem? What was the solution (if there was one)?
