I will keep this short and to the point. I have asthma, I've had it all my life and I am 25 years old. I used to run track and play sports daily. In 2004 I had very bad asthma one day and would use my inhaler multiple times daily since. It began as a tightness in my chest and the inhaler didn't help like it used to.
Fast forward five years later. I have post nasal drip due to my allergies and this triggers asthma (as far as I can tell). I have gone from a complete jock to a complete **m because trying to run always results in an asthma attack and I end up trying to cough up loose "stuff" I feel in my chest. My last attempt at exercise was a 3 minute run around the block. This resulted in me have to use my nebulizer and I had to lay on my floor for about 45 minutes until I felt OK.
I'm on symbicort, claritin, and mucinex at the moment. Nothing is working.
Please help, this has taken a large toll on me both physically and mentally and has caused a lot of problems in my professional life.
