    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??

    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....

    Symptoms not going away

    I have exercise induced asthma and am a recent ex-smoker (for like the 6th time, after 9 years). Until the past year my symptoms only fared up about once a week or less but has been getting more and more frequent and then today, about 3 days after quitting I have mild symptoms that have not gone away even after using my inhaler and it came on for seemingly no reason.
  • Could my asthma be back? Or is it anxiety?

    Hi all! I just need some insight, because I am getting a bit freaked out! When I was a baby, I had an asthma attack that triggered the fear of not being able to breathe. Until about middle school, I had mild asthma so I had an inhaler that I would use when need be. It has been many years since I have had an asthma attack, and I don't even have an inhaler anymore. I have mild anxiety as well that has not been diagnosed by a medical professional, but I know it exists in my life. I do not take medication....

    Asthma and VCD

    I am a military veteran. While on active duty, I was diagnosed with Exercise Induced Asthma and used an albuterol inhaler for several years which seemed to diminish the effects somewhat. Upon retirement, I received VA benefits commensurate to that disability. A few years ago, the VA conducted a follow-on test and determined that I no longer had asthma. After several months and visits to the pulmonologist, it was determined that I actually have VCD and not asthma as originally diagnosed. My claim....
