Hi everyone! When my asthma flares up I go through periods of breathlessness and constant yawning and feeling like I can't take a deep breath (I'm currently taking Seretide 250 2x/day, Zyrtec, Nasacort and vitamins--magnesium, fish oil, D). I do breathing exercises throughout the day but have little relief.
I'm a 5'3 woman and for my age, my PeakFlow should be around 430. It's often 450 and rarely goes lower even when I'm feeling awful. I had read that this could mean my smaller airways were narrowing and causing the symptoms but when I asked my pulmonologist about
it, he said it was nonsense
["hocus pocus" were his exact words!]
Has anyone else experienced this?
