I have always had hay fever. I am 57. After about
40 and occasional bouts of bronchitis, i have developed
dust, or cat induced asthma. I have used
bronchial inhalers lightly over 10 yrs. There
has not been obvious adverse problems from
this. I have not overused them. Last
couple months cant seem to kick a combination
of chronic asthma, plus some mucus coming
out of lungs, so i think i have developed chronic
Sometimes i feel pretty good and dont remember
i have it. Other times i get started with a bout
of sneezing, then sinus mucous, then bronchial
tubes tighten, then get some mucous coming
from lungs, clear or slightly colored, but doesnt
seem to go away, and can even become painful
for lake of ability to exhale, due to mucous.
I have been fighting this with antihistamines
chlorotabs, which help, and local inhaler
It seemed to get somewhat worse a couple
weeks ago, when i was soldering something
and caught some breathes of a melting plastic.
I dont believe i have pneumonia, and i wont
take anti-biotics, even narrow spectrum,
because i believe it hurts other body organs,
colon, balance, pancreas liver etc.
Anything else i can do.? thanks in advance.
