trying to understand my asthma

I am almost 70 and got diagnosed a few years ago. On the whole I can cope very well but nobody has every said to me (so I don't know if it is possible) that besides the weather affecting breathing it can also affect the body.

For example when the St.Jude storm was builing up I felt so poorly, my body didn't want to respond and I was using my inhalers several times a day. My legs and arms were heavy and I generally felt awful. Even my digestive system was bad. This can also just happen in a day and within a couple of hours and the weather changes I feel fine and can do any jobs and go for a good walk. From Friday to Monday night I felt like that today (Tuesday) air good, not windy I feel really well!!

Can anyone help and advise me please
