Hi there, me again!!
Exercise is a really big trigger for me but I don't want to give it up but I'm really findin it hard. I take two puff 15 minutes before exercise but 5-10 minutes into it I feel sooo tight chested, and like I'm breathing through a straw and like my lungs have turned to lead. i have also started to get a stitch like feeling in the bottom of my lung which makes it painful to breathe. I still have a bit of a cough but the ventolin has helped this and has definately dried my phlegm up (yuck, sorry). I usually find I have to take 2 more puffs of ventolin afterwards too. Its not like I'm pushing things too far, I only run 2 miles! It is upsetting me really as I don't like being so limited.
I am still battling to control my asthma anyway, so is it possible that as the control gets better, the exercise will get better? Is there anything that might help me? Anyone have any advice??
I am seeing the nurse next week but would just like some advice from people who know first hand what its like.
