I'm an avid runner and cyclist where i was exercising for at least an hour most days until about May this year. I began to struggle with an achy chest, no wheeze though. Sometimes the ache is in my chin aswell. Until then I would only need my blue inhaler if I had a cold/ virus. Why has my very mild asthma sudden got so much worse? Dr put me on a preventer inhaler which reduced the amount of phlegm I was producing but chest wise not a lot of improvement. It did improve my PF from 380-480. I know it takes time for the steroid to build up but it never helped with this rotten feeling in my chest which hurts to breath. Dr also told me increase to 4 puff ventolin before and after. To no avail :/
I have had ecg, X-ray and multiple blood test to rule out other possibilities. I'm now down to about 3 days a week of exercise as it takes me so long to recover.
Dr is convinced it's EIA, I'm not so sure though as it doesn't feel like it's restricting my breathing, just makes it uncomfortable. Has anyone else experienced a similar chesy achyness with asthma?
