Seasonal asthma ?!

Does anyone have seasonal asthma at all ? I'm wondering if I maybe do. From June till October I had on/off symptoms of heavy chest , very unproductive cough, a whistle when I would cough and couldn't sleep because my chest felt heavy and felt like I just could not breath and when I would exercise it would get worse sometimes. My symptoms have finally calmed down so I'm wondering if this sounds like a seasonal asthma ?! I also did the methocholine challenge today but it didn't show anything but I'm also not symptomatic at this point.

Yes. My son's is worse in the summer due to hay fever / allergy as an additional trigger for his symptoms


Seasonal because asthma tends to emerge at lower temperatures in the presence of atmospheric humidity but not in dry climates (in my experience.)
