Outstanding bedside manor, expert medical management and quick access by phone and email have controlled my symptoms to the point I live life fully.

    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

    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?

    When I do light exercise or run, it feels almost like my throat is being closed up and I can't breathe. It also feels like I can't fill my lungs to their full capacity and I wheeze too. I was put on a Prozac (?) rescue inhaler 30 minutes before exercise and when needed, and it did nothing. Now I'm on an Advair inhaler twice a day, and no surprise, it's not working. It's definitely not because I'm out of shape because it happens during any exercise all throughout the year.....

    PLEASE HELP

    So I'm a teenager and I play sports but I have asthma but my doctors say it's minor. I take proair (albuterol) as a rescue inhaler but it doesn't help. I can't do anything and it's causing me to make up stuff to get out of sports practice. I can't even bend down and tie my shoes without getting out of breath. I have had 3 asthma attacks in my life and I know this is serious but my mom kind of just brushes it off. What should I do??

    Cough that does not go away - could it be candida????

    I have an issue with a cough and runny sinus drainage all day ... on and off. It started in 1994. I was on this board starting around 2000 for many years. I was really bad with severe coughing .. non stop for 24-36 hours at a time. And I was told I was a medical challenge. I went to National Jewish Hospital in Denver in 2003 and they did not really have any answers. I was and have been recently tested for asthma, but I do not have asthma. And I found doctors who would work with me and we would bounce....

    Allergies?

    I'm a 13/yr female and I was diagnosed with bronchitis (idk if that's what it's called but it's like asthma but not as bad) a couple years ago, and just recently my doctor said we can now say I have asthma. But a couple months ago my nose was stuffy on a daily basis but it was really runny at the same time and I sneeze at least twice every day. I have 2 dogs, I don't go near anyone who smokes , and my house is probably a little dusty... but could I be slightly allergic to my dogs....
