I am going to Denver on holiday in 2 weeks, well actually to the mountains above Denver, circa 7800 feet i think. I am visiting a school friend and she has told me that ""lots"" of people who go there suffer from altitude sickness. At first I thought she was joking but apparently not. It has started me thinking would it affect my asthma as the air is ""thinner"". I am usually well controlled but recently i have been struggling a bit as i have had 2 colds one after another. I am currently on steroids 2 puffs am and pm for at least 2 months. Ventolin is being used much less as a result.
Does anyone have any experience of high altitude? Was your asthma affected or am i worrying about nothing?!
