I was given a wheelchair when i came out of hospital back in November 2008. I have been told to use it whenever i am going to be walking further than the end of my street (about 6 houses width) but i do not get why an asthmatic should need to use a wheelchair? I do find that if i do too much exertion about 5 hours later or half way through the night of that day i have an asthma attack.
Why would an asthmatic need a wheelchair?
Just listened to podcast and it says asthma does not stop people having fun?!
Why would a wheelchair help an asthmatic?
Could it be that they think exercise is a trigger for me so by limiting exercise i will have less attacks?
thank you in advacne for your replies a very concerned and confused
