Re: Asthma Episode
Thanks For the replies so far. See, when I was younger I use to be on Tornalate and Intal. Then I was switched to albuterol and intal. My doctor that I go to now, knows that I am just on albuterol and she never said anything else about it. Just recently, for almost 2 months now, have I been having these problems all the time. When I say all the time, I mean everyday. So I do believe I need a maintenance medication. The only thing is would anyone consider this asthma attacks or just symptoms? That is the one question I do not know. I am not always gasping for air, sometimes I just get really tight and I feel like I am not getting enough air into my lungs. Like I cannot take a deep breath or even get a good yawn out. It feels like I do not have enough air for that. I don't quite understand it and it is like the littlest thing can trigger it, or sometimes I just wake up like that and I am like that until I use my inhaler. I feel like my airways are way to sensitive now for whatever reason. And I cannot pin point what my triggers triggers are, because it seems like everything is causing it. Now it is so bad, that as soon as I smell something I don't like, I tighten up right away. Sometime I get so weak and lightheaded, it feels like if I don't relax, I will pass out. It is just so aggravating and I feel like it is slowing me down from doing things I need to do. Maybe that is what I need. Maybe I need to slow down for a moment.
