I had really poorly controlled asthma for a while until I was diagnosed with Addison's a few years ago. Now it mostly behaves itself (on seretide and tiotropium and montelukast) except during pollen season when I need extra oral steroids and regular abx.
One of the fab things is that I can now run even in cold weather. In the past I couldn't even leave the house in cold weather, but now I take my salbutamol 10-20 minutes before I run and I'm fine... until I stop running.
It doesn't matter whether I run for 25 minutes (3 miles) or 90 minutes (10 miles) - it's all fine while I'm running, and then the minute I stop running I start to tighten up and cough and cough. Initially I thought it was the change in temperature and humidity from coming inside, but I've now tried staying outside and walking until my heart rate is totally normal, and it still happens.
I am under the severe/difficult asthma clinic at hospital so I can send a message to my consultant but I just wondered if anyone else has this issue? They're not very severe attacks but as I run 4-5 times per week it does mean that I'm having 4-5 attacks each week, which isn't ideal, and I've had a couple of bad-ish attacks in the last two weeks from allergic triggers, which suggests my lungs are becoming less and less happy.
Any suggestions / thoughts?
