    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....

Anyway I have noticed when I exercise and exert myself just slightly I become short of breath, coughing and wheezing... I mentioned it to my doctor who prescribed me an....

    Does poor air quality can be a problem ?

    Hi All, My mom was diagnosed with cataract last week. As Doctor suggested me to go ahead with operation at the earliest, so I told mom to go and get yourself admitted to the hospital.

At that time, I visited her a couple of times, all the time she uses to complain me about an odour with she is irritated. in the first case didn't mind it but she again....
