hi again!
 
i have asthma for 7/8 yrs when i was a child and now im 20 i still get the odd wheeze when running and feeling that i cant inhale fully when i exercise, could this be the asthma recurring or would it be poor breathing technique? i can swim and hold my breathe for 40 metres but i cant breathe properly when i run! how does this work?

If you haven't been in to see a pulmonologist lately you may want to get in to see one. They can easily test to see if your asthma is still present. My son has asthma but not typical. The doc said that it may be his small airways that are affected. But he doesn't take asthma medication on a regular basis, mainly when his allergies act up and it affects his breathing. He can hold his breath for a long time, has a great peak flow but when he runs or does anything physical he tends to get short winded.

Hi Justme,
Yes, asthma can come back. I had asthma as a child, and it went into remission until I got pneumonia in my 20's. It is now exacerbated by allergies and viruses. I was having real problems with it due to GERD, but had surgery to correct that on February 27th. It has taken the GERD asthma trigger away, thank goodness.

It's time for you to revisit the allergy/asthma doc (or pulmonologist, if you prefer), and see what's going on.
Good luck to you!
Denise

Hi dencha and red_34,

thats for your msg's.

i did have a pulmonary function test last year when i had pericarditis but they said it was all normal even though i still find it hard to take deep enough breaths when exercising. could it be exercise induced asthma? as i dont think i have any allergies, not that i know off! also with costochondritis i dont really expand my lungs coz it hurts. almost like breathing backwards with rib movements.
In a bombshell, ive had costochondritis then tonsillitis, which resulted in pericarditis and now post viral syndrome with suspected costochondritis again.....all in one year! ps. still ill!

hi Justme,
Sounds like you've been going through a lot! If you're still having breathing issues, and had a history of asthma as a child, you definitely need to see a doctor. Maybe an allergy-asthma doctor would be helpful at this point.
I wish you all the best with your recovery, and finding an answer to your breathing problems!
Denise
