Question Asthma/ Menopause Connection

Hi Ladies !
I am in the throw's of menopause and have also developed asthma suddenly. This has me very puzzled. Any of you had this come up?
I really never had asthma before this. I have also started with mild high blood pressure this past few months as well.. I guess I'm just falling apart !
If you have an similar "war" stories....I'd love to hear about yours !

Thanks, God Bless !

Re: Asthma/ Menopause Connection

I was diagnosed with asthma at 45 and I'm now 48. But I have always had sinus and allergy problems, so I'm sure mine are related to that. But I noticed a increase when my perimenopausal symptoms started. I have a little higher than normal blood pressure, but I also need to lose weight. I am on Advair and Allegra for asthma and allergies. I am also considering an alternative supplements called **************. Have you ever heard of them?

Cool Re: Asthma/ Menopause Connection

Hi Howitt
Thanks for the reply. Yes I am on Allegra for allergies year round. I am 49 and things are really changing fast for me healthwise.
I do not know much about natural suppliments but I am on a low dose estrogen. Like they say "Growing Old Ain't for Sissy's" !!

Have a good evening !
