I was sat in my doctors waiting room today when i came across a leaflet called Out there and active by asthma uk
On page 7 of the little booklet it has an answer to a question i have asked and a few others have asked so thought i would post it up, how this is ok
Exercise and Asthma
Excercise is a common trigger for asthma. It can affect anybody with asthma. children or adults, recreational sports players or elite athletes. It is not known exactly how exercise triggers asthma.
It is believed it is because when people exercise they breathe faster. This makes it more difficult for the nose and upper airways to warm up and add moisture to the air breathed in, resulting in the air being drier and colder than usual. It is thought that this cold, dry air in the airways triggers the symptoms of exercise induced asthma. Symptoms usually begin after exercise and get worse about 15 minutes after exercise stops.
This piece of literature certainly has helped me and showed me i am not alone in symptoms after stopping exercise. Hope it helps others too.
