Hi all, hope everyone's well
I just have a few questions about exercise and asthma.
First of all, I think I may have asked this before, but how long before exercising should salbutamol be used? I've been using it about 10-15 minutes before I head to tge gym but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Secondly, how long is it normal to have asthma symptoms for after exercising? I seem to have the, all night ans sometimes into the next day. A nurse told me once that it's ok to be sob for a while, I'm just not sure how long a while is!
Finally, how far is it safe for me to push myself whilst at the gym? Im trying to improve my fitness so im doing lots of cardio stuff. Should I stop when I start feeling that my chest is tight or wait until I start couching and canr take deep breaths?
My new year's resolution is to become better at managing my asthma, rather than just ignoring it, so im trying to educate myself about what I should be doing. I have a few questions ready to ask at , y review in april but I cant wait until then to exercise- im one of those odd people that find going to the gym relaxing!
Sorry abour any typos, I'm still getting to grips with a new tablet!
