I know both these subjects have been discussed at length in the past, but I'd like to hear from people who have either of these as I'm trying to self-diagnose!
Sometimes I seem to wheeze when breathing in, and it feels like my chest is clear, but my throat is narrow - so this doesn't seem like asthma. Taking my inhaler has little or no effect, so I just tend to try and ignore it and it goes away after about 30 minutes or so.
Other times (like tonight) I get a very annoying cough which I don't register as an attack of asthma because its not really accompanied by a wheeze, but usually if I make a big deep breath out, I can hear/feel a little bit of a wheeze right at the end. My peak flow appears normal, but taking two puffs of salbutamol makes the symptoms disappear.
Other times I get the works - cough, wheeze, breathlessness - what I would actually recognise as asthma.
Weird? Or normal?
