Hey all, hoping you can settle an argument for me here!
I had a bit of a scary do with my asthma a couple of months ago, my first and hopefully last. Since then I've quit smoking and I'm on a higher dose of my inhaler than I was. My asthma is pretty much totally under control, and doesn't really bother me at all now.
I work in a busy nursing home, the work's very physical with lots of running around particularly on the morning shifts. I've noticed since my return to work from sickness that I get quite short of breath occasionally, mostly while working, usually when exerting myself but also occasionally when just talking (that's usually when it's a subject I'm passionate about though lol!). It doesn't happen every shift though, and sometimes I can run up the stairs without a problem, which makes me think it's asthma more than being unfit since I do the same work and run around like a headless chicken every shift.
My sister, who loves to say the opposite of anything I say, keeps telling me it's cos I'm just unfit and I need to exercise and spend a fortune on keep fit stuff at Argos!
What do you think? I'm not after medical advice here or owt like that, cos the shortness of breath doesn't really bother me, and usually goes once I've rested or taken my puffer, just an opinion from people who are objective would be great!
