I'm very new to this and haven't been diagnosed as asthmatic yet - although reliever and preventer inhaler do seem to be improving my symptoms (cough, wheezing, tight chest, difficulty taking deep breaths).
I have also had what I've assumed to be an allergy for about 10 years now, which gives me a very itchy throat and lip, and sometimes will cause my nasal passages to become so inflamed they totally close. I've never been able to identify a trigger for this, it seems to be caused by many different things multiple times a day/night - from temperature and mood changes to certain foods and smells. I've noticed taking ventolin for asthma symptoms seems to give immediate relief of these allergy-type symptoms, which is very strange!
I know allergic asthma is a thing, but I'm confused about why ventolin would stop the apparent allergy symptoms (rather than just treating the asthma)?
I just wondered whether anyone has experience with similar symptoms and if this could be linked to asthma? If I could finally know a cause of my allergy symptoms and be able to manage them more effectively, that would be incredible!
