Weather

My main asthma trigger is changes in weather. At the moment the weather will not make its mind up what it wants to do?! I really wish it would as i am getting triggered almost every other day at the moment and it is very draining.

The main times i am triggered is Sept when it goes suddenly colder and Feb when it goes warmer.

Anyone elses main trigger changes in weather?

Its so unfair this reaction to the weather. I am suffering in terms of excessive needs to sleep but can't. So estless. Now I got a cold and its horrible. Signs of an infection but hoping its not. Too much coughing to venture out.

Changes in weather always get me. The humid weather and thunderstorm the last couple of days have got the lungs twitching.

yes, thunder is a big trigger as is very hot or very cold weather. I am struggling a lot today.

Hot to cold weather doesn't bother me. The rain/dry conditions have caused me problems recently, especially this weekend. I think it either moves more pollen in the air or encourages its production.

I suspect its not possible to irradicate pollen from the planet. Am thinking of moving to the North Pole! Wonder if tescos'll deliver there?

TS have checked tesco website unfortuantley north pole just outside of delivery zones at the present time. Try occado though! ;) I was told once to move to a warm/hot dry climate not sure that the desert round Las Vegas is that appealing - don't doctors watch CSI

Right there with you guys!

Extremes of weather get me particularly coming inside from the cold in the winter. Over the weekend it's been humid and thundery - um that got me too. I live on the Isle of Wight by the sea so you would think it would help but it doesn't.

Definitely something in the air. Coughing big style these days. Fairly rocketing through the salbutamol.

damp weather has returned! Grr! I have a pair of tired lungs that want a rest but can someone please tell the weather man to stop the weather changing?!

Yeah, the change in the weather does my lungs in too! Damp weather is a nightmare! When I win the lotto ill go somewhere sunny, but until then its Budesonide and Ventolin to the rescue.......!!

Humid weather and a stuffy room have really been getting to me recently. Cold air always makes me cough loads as well. Think it's more hayfever related at the moment though.
