Hallo all,

I have developed occupational asthma. I left my job when I got the diagnosis (now about 6 months ago).

I kept working there, while having this problem, for about 6 months. (it took a while before doctors accepted the work was indeed the problem, altough, I pretty much knew it immediatly).

I however not only got this occupational asthma , I also developed "general" asthma: even now (6 months after I left my job) I still have problems and its not gone completely. I also developed Exercise-Induced Asthma.

Now I am taking pulmicort (oral corticosteroids, budesonide) + I have to take duovent (puffer).
The pulmicort is on a dialy basis (twice in the morning/evening). The duovent is something I ahve to take before I do some sport.

Now I am wondering: anyone else here that has developed occupational asthma?

I have good days (no or almost no problems) but also bad days (problems with lungs).
For sports its pretty simple: I had to pretty much stop doing what I did. What I now try to do is go for a (short) run...
But even with the duovent, after the run I Always have some chest thightness....
However, even with this problem I decided to start doing some more sports...

Any others here having similar problems?
