I was just wondering what causes asthma to randomly flare? I got my allergy shots last night and this morning I woke up wheezing and coughing. It never got to severe although I did use my nebulizer a couple of hours ago and really have not noticed much change. I was also wondering if maybe I could be sick since everyone around me is getting that bad cold going around. I always have stuffy sinuses and I work with animals (yes allergic to them too). Being that I am on meds for Crohn's disease I wonder if I am only experiencing part of a cold or bronchitis yet I was okay until this morning. I always feel wheezing in my lower part of my left lung they even checked to see if the crohn's spread there but it was clear. I was going to call my Dr. today but his office is closed on Fridays and I figured since I am not gasping for breath I can wait to call to see how things go but if I get any worse I plan on going to the walk in clinic.
Does anyone know if it could be me getting sick or is it more likely just the asthma acting up?
