    PLEASE HELP

    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??

    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....

    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....
