    Asthma Management

    I've had asthma for 27 years and been on a slew of medications. I've learned to live with symptoms no matter where or what I'm doing. Unfortunately it's become my normal and I'm just now wanting to put a stop to all my daily flare ups. I find it very hard to avoid triggers and medications only do so much for me. Anyone else feel in such a fog?

    Asthma inhalers

    Sorry for typographical errors I took more pro air inhalations recently and had a cramp in my right leg about a week ago while in the bathtub. Truly terrifying! And no doctor ever warned me about cramps . I just called a pharmacist and was told that yes, pro air, which is Albuterol, causes cramps. I plan to stop milk products and perhaps won't need the inhalers again!!

    Asthma and pro air medication for asthma

    I got a severe leg cramp again last night I never thought it was related to my inhaler. Now, for 3 months I will get off milk pruducts and see if I don't need the albuterol anymore. These cramps are terrifying I scream because the pain is so severe! I have had these cranks sporadically as long as I have been on asthma medication. I got off the steroids because I was becoming obese. Valia In NYC
  • Mint Asthma Trigger.

    The other day my teacher told me she'd never heard of mint triggering asthma before. Has anybody else ever had the problem with mint triggering their asthma, or was it just me..? Thanks.

    Flowers of sulfur taken internally

    I am Woking in the woods and Deet is Okay, but I read that sulfur will work if taken internally in 1/8 tsp doses. Is this okay to do?

    trigger prevention

    A friend has recently been diagnosed with Asthma, triggered by smells. She feels secluded, unable to go to church or anywhere with many people, due to the perfumes and lotions. Is there any mask that prevents smells from entering her nose? Or would mouth only breathing prevent an attack? Any information would be appreciated so that I could help my friend. Thank you.

    Best air purifiers for asthma and animal dander, etc

    My asthma dr says it would help for me to put an air purifier in my bedroom. I do have allergies to dust and dog dander. The higher the CADR ( clean air delivery rate ) the better. Also a HEPA filter. They are not cheap. My bedroom is about 400 sq feet. Does anyone have any experience with these or knowledge you can share. If I am going to spend this kind of money, I want the best one for me. Thanks. Sheree

    Asthma flare ups

    I have had asthma for 10 years. It has been under control for most of these years until these past 2 years. It seems to be so much worse, frequent flare ups, trips to the Dr. I have the breathing tests which shows I do have some problems, but they say its not COPD. Never smoked. I actually lose my breath, which causes me to panic. I feel light headed a lot. I am tired all the time. I also have chronic rhinitis which adds to this equation. And have PVC'S OF my heart which makes me lost my breath....
