Hi Alexandra. To answer your question, yes, I have asthma that is triggered by
allergies, and I'm not alone. According to the Mayo Clinic, about 60% of asthma sufferers have allergic asthma. That said, as Titchou mentioned, the symptoms you describe don't necessarily mean asthma. In fact, in the absence of coughing, wheezing, or other asthma symptoms, I'm inclined to think these are probably just symptoms of your allergies.
Again, like Titchou said, it's easy enough to find out whether you have asthma. A pulmonologist can give you a test to confirm or reject the diagnosis. Make an appointment or talk to your general practitioner about it soon. If you do have asthma, you should get the diagnosis as soon as possible so that you can develop an asthma management plan and have any necessary medication that may save your life if you have a bad attack. If you don't have asthma, your doctor should be able to help you alleviate your annoying allergy symptoms.
