    Why Now?

    I'm 57 years old. I had asthmas issues as a small child but most of my adult life I was not bothered unless I was sick. I smoked for 40 years. I quit May of 2017 and my asthma has done nothing but get worse. I was aware thing would get worse before they got better but it is almost 2 years now. I work in an environment that has latex balloons regularly inflated. Could my lungs recovering from smoking now be sensitive to the latex in the air? Is there any way for me to figure this out? I've....

    Trouble with breathing while running in cold temperatures

    A few years ago without warning I started having issues with breathing while running outside in cold weather (usually 40 degrees f. or colder).

Once I notice the pain, no matter how soon....

    Vaping

    I switched over to vaping about 6 months ago and ever since then when I use the vaporizor for about the past 3 months I have chills the next day, inability to get warm and problems breathing. I do think vaping is better for you than smoking but I was wondering if anyone had any idea what would be causing so many issues. I dont know if its the brand I am using or if I have a bigger issue. I go from very hot to very cold and seem to have no control over it, plus I have been having increasing issues....
