    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 had the same job 18 years and it was a within the first years after I started working that my asthma started becoming more active. I never thought there could be a connection. I just figured it was my age. Any ideas. I don't want to give up my job but I may need to see if I have options.
