    Re: Asthma breathing problems

    Does anyone have any knowledge of how or if a high end air purifier would help with my asthma. I have heard a lot about the Molekule ( a very expensive one ) that some say has given much relief. Any imput would be most appreciated. shopa42@yahoo.com

    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.....

    Asthma

    Last year my 5 year old starting suffering from asthma. He's been I and out of e/r with asthma, mainly because of pneumonia. We've tried daily singular, not working. I've taken him to get alternative treatments for prevention, cupping, acupuncture, herbal treatment. It's not working. We've discovered that exposure to dogs triggers it and colds too. I'm suspecting chlorine as well from swimming. He's allergic to everything so I do my best to keep house air clean and keep....

    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....

    Is this Athma??

    Its a bit of a story, if anyone has had something slimier I would love to hear about it. I hope there is a light at the end of this tunnel. At the end of December I caught a nasty Bronchitis cold, it was a horrific 3 weeks of being unable to breath and tons of ER visits with breathing treatments. Ever since then my breathing has never been the same as it was befor. I am constantly struggling to breath its a fight ever single moment and even with qvar, rescue inhailer, neutralizer with albuterol sulfate....
