I’m in a bit of a pickle here because I just don’t understand what’s going on. I was diagnosed with late onset asthma last year after a couple of years of seasonal allergy stuff around this time of year. However I was afterwards diagnosed with a heart problem from birth ie a valve defect. I have to keep the heart people informed of any changes. I’m not actually sure what asthma feels like to be honest.
So I’ve been fairly ok. I do suffer with some shortness of breath if I walk up hills/walk too quick etc which I’m putting down to the heart condition.
The night before last I went upstairs to bed and I just couldn’t catch my breath. I had spent all day in fields and the rape seed is out. Yesterday I went up to London and had loads of stairs to climb at the station and it’s like there’s a brick wall stopping me breath properly which I had last year from the potential asthma. I used my blue pump, took an anti inflammatory and was ok. Was at a concert and was fine - it was a great lively concert and lots of dancing etc
Today I’m fine although very runny nosed , sneezy etc. So I understand the shortness of breath from heart butcwhat about the barrier feeling. Is that asthma? I used to get it last year. It wouldn’t just suddenly start again if it weren’t seasonal?
