smhair HI...
I have had asthma all my life. mad Sometimes it gets better and sometimes gets out of control. I went for years with almost no problem. Then in my 20's I was in hospital many times with BAD attacks etc. Then I had allergy shots for 7 years. I was ok until about 12 years ago, I went to Florida and about croaked. The humidity, pollen, molds etc. there about put me under..my friend had to call an ambulance and I spent 3 weeks in hospital. Anyway, I was put on Prednisone, and 3 inhalers...nebulizers, oxygen etc. If you go on Prednisone is makes you feel great, but be careful and don't stay on it for long if you can help it. I was on it on and off for 10 years and started to get serious side effects...I am off now...and having problems with my body adjusting to being off of it. My best inhaler is Symbicort, and Handihaler...these two work the best for me. I am pretty stable now..use oxygen some...any questions, let me know. I now also have COPD and emphasema (from smoking)..so take care of yourself.

Hi ,

I have been suffering from asthma for last 2 years and asthma really sucks. The other night, I couldn't seem to breathe right. My friend kept making me laugh a lot. I took too much of my inhaler, and got the shakes, and had a hard time sleeping.

Just thought I would share...most of the time my asthma is under control but it reared its ugly head in the last few days...

Thx
Jessi

My asthma was irritated by my gerd. I had acid reflux surgery last week and I'm no longer coughing all the time. :)

Hey Denny,

I had gone to the hospital for a check. My asthma flared up again. I don't what has caused it to flare up. The doctor has taken some tests. Just waiting to see what he says.

The doctor gave me the results of my asthma tests. It turns out that my asthma is caused by some kind of allergy. What allergy causes my asthma to go up is still unknown. That is up to me now to find out what is causing the flare up of my asthma.

Hey All,

My allergy has caused because of pets. Pet's dead skin flakes, urine, feces, saliva and hair can trigger asthma it seems. I have a cat at home. So the doctor has adviced me to be away from my pet which is very sad.

Hi Soni,

I agree with you.Yoga is a system inclusive of physical and mental training that can benefit people of all ages. It involves Asanas (body postures) and Pranayama (art of breath control), among which of its physical uses are to reduce stress-related conditions, help with circulatory and respiratory disorders such as Asthma and Bronchitis, and improve over-all health.
