Today has been hot with sticky, thick air in London. I have also had to use the underground a lot today and go in and out of air conditioned sites for work. Temperature changes are normally a trigger and so not surprisingly my lungs have been fairly cranky. I'm not worried about this and am having a good time asthma wise at the mo, my question is:
Why do changes in temperature make an impact?
It's not as though hot or cold- ness are allergens. Do lungs/airways have temp recepters that are over sensitive in asthmatic lungs...?
Appologies if this is in the wrong section but I think the answer may be a medically based one?
Thanks for any info
