    Weird symptoms

    Hi there. I had asthma when I was young(triggered by allergies). I smoked for the past 4 years, up to this day without any health problems. After this winter, which was marked by 2 or 3 colds(very unusual for me to get a cold more than once a year), I found myself coughing up tonsil stones. This spring, I started noticing pain in my chest(not localised in one place) while bending over and breathing deeply(sometimes). Another thing that made me question my health is that my smoker's cough changed....
  • Do you know Jesus Christ?

    Hi guys. I don't know where to post this, but the Lord has been laying it on my heart for the past few days to tell people about Jesus. This burden is so strong that I have felt sick and very desperate to reach out to others and tell them about Jesus. I asked my Pastor if there were any ministries I could do through my church to serve God, but all he said to me was that if there was anything, he'd let me know. God has been driving me to serve Him so bad that I don't think I can wait much....

    Asthma and Tylenol Cold Nighttime

    I have asthma but it only gets bad when I do heavy excersize or get sick, I have a cold and want to sleep at night but I can't because I am always waking up from cold symptoms and coughing (from my asthma). I really want to get a good nights rest so would it be dangerous if I took some Tylonal cold nighttime or would that be dangerous and prevent me from waking up when I need to take my inhaler?

    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.
  • Can spirometer tests be inaccurate?

    I took a spirometer test last week to see if I have asthma from having bronchitis a couple of times when I was younger, and the results came back at my lung function is 62%. She said it was a low number and I do, but it's "controlled". The nurse that gave the test seemed pretty careless and I didn't understand as she kept changing her instructions and was pushing all kinds of buttons on the machine. She said to exhale as fast and as hard as I could within the beeps, but I didn't....

    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
