i was curious if anybody suffers from this or knows about this. i only get asthma at night, sometimes slight other times so bad i cannot sleep cos my bronchial tubes are so constricted i can hardly breathe. i dont want to be a slave to an inhaler as imho that only treats a symptom and not the cause. i have noticed that on occasion coffee or wormwood/black walnut extract help if i take it before bed when i feel my chest tightening. i've seen a naturopath and had breathing treatments done which helped alleviate the severity of the asthma, but did not make it go away. quercitin did not help either. when i have a bad case of it during the night, the next morning i am constantly blowing my nose. no cough or head cold symptoms, just a severe runny nose for a few hours.
so did i inhale something that got deep into my lungs that causes me problems only at night? could this be a mold/fungus? should i have a mold inspection at my house? and it is not only when i sleep at my place - other peoples houses, hotels, camping, etc. and like i said, sometimes it is bad, sometimes mild. i've had a course of antibiotics and used collodial silver in case it was bacterial but since it did not go away i doubt it was bacterial in nature/cause.
i am fine during physical activity (weight training, surfing, tai chi, walks); however i am not a runner or cyclist so i do not know if it would appear if i did some heavy aerobic activity (i keep my exercise to anaerobic).
any help or suggestions would be great. i am at a total loss and so are my doctors.
