Hi, I am 26 years old and have asthma. Recently, I have not been able to breath well when I wake up from sleep and it also seems when I go to bed. EVERY day I wake up it feels like I am wheezing and cough after every deep breath. This will also happen sometimes in the middle of the day. I also seem to ALWAYS be clearing my throat or coughing up little small pieces of clear mucus throughout the day. In addition, I will get random chest pains on my upper left side. It could be while I'm running, sitting, working out, whatever. My nose is plugged 100% of the time, and when I clear it or take a nasal spray, my breathing does not get better. It feels like it is my lungs that can't get a deep breath.
I have taken my inhaler which doesn't really do anything. Any ideas? My Doctors right everything off since I am young and active and have not really given me any kind of direction.
