I need some advice i was diagnosed with asthma nearly 3 years ago and through trial and tribulation at was sort of under control with the odd blip. Surprisingly i had an attack last week which i couldnt blame my usual trigger on ( hayfever and rhinitus ) . I had just returned from a comfortable 5km run and coming from the cool air outside into the warm air of home seemed to tip it. This attack lasted 35-40 mins eventually calming down with the use on my blue inhaler. However this morning i had a stress induced attack caused by my agitation towards a family member and partner ( who i dislike intensely ) this is the first time i have had one of these attacks and it lasted nearly 45 mins. It annoyed me that i had allowed myself to get that worked up to bring on this attack. I went to see the nurse and GP within 30 mins of the attack and had a full check up who were happy to send me home with no further treatment required, unless it happens again.
As obviously i cannot keep having these attacks because they are spoiling my own stress busting method of running. I have quite a stressful but normal lifestyle at home, I care for my disabled Husband, i work, i look after my own kids as well as my Grandson so i am kept quite busy. Which is why this stress must have been fairly high to give the attack.
My question to you is does anyone have any methods of stress relief that dont hinder their asthma ? .
Thanks in advance.
