/ Exercise Induced Asthma
I have been experiencing wheeziness after races for a couple of years, but more recently my breathing has felt restricted during races with quite obvious wheezing, I felt like I was running on half a lung at the Calderdale Relay today.
I am going to go and see the Dr this week, but would welcome others experience
Not a new pet, I have had a dog for years.
Hasn't interfered with my exercising at all.
Carry a blue inhaler in the bottom of my rucsac/mini saddlebag on road bike just in case I get an attack. Can't recall when I last used them.
I also have a blue inhaler in every rucksack I use!
I have severe exercise-induced bronchoconstriction and I'm currently assisting a PHD student on his research on the matter (he posted on here a while back looking for volunteer for his trials). I had my first 'test' at Nottingham Trent University two weeks ago I'm back there this week. He'd not seen a case like mine before!
My EIB is linked to pollen levels and at thus time of year I suffer more than any other time. I'd be surprised if this didn't have something to do with your recent symptoms given the time of year/increase in pollen count.
EIB is diagnosed when the person experiences at least 10% reduction in forced expiratory volume. I saw a 38% reduction two weeks ago. I anticipate it to be worse this week if the weather is good.
