Hi razzle.

My doc says I have asthma, which I don't. I think it might have been to get a medication approved.

You might see a pulmonologist for a second opinion.

I took a single puff from an albuterol inhaler and ended up in the ER a few hours later with severe tachycardia. It's not unusual to have a reaction to it as long as 8 hours later. I had used albuterol for a breathing test in the office a few months previously and was fine. It's possible to pop up with new allergies and intolerances any time, out of the blue.

I have my seasonal allergies and year-round ones under good control with the shots. They're great for never getting congested again.
