Last night, I seem to have a fairly severe asthma attack which has progressed into this morning. My asthma means I cough a lot and have a constant tickle ion my throat. I have taken salbutamol three times already, and although it is easing, I do not feel like it has entirely gone away. Is there an actual connection between asthma and hyperthyroidism that anyone with asthma has experienced? They say that before you take your inhaler you must let your doctor know that you have an overactive thyroid. Any help support is as always, gratefully welcome.
