Re: Does anyone here have nonallergic asthma?
My asthma also emerged 2 years ago following a respiratory infection. I have no known allergies but I am highly susceptible to irritants. I don't wheeze but do get SOB and cough severely (usually dry).
Physical exertion, fragrances, smoke, temperature variations and humidity all give me problems.
I had my asthma confirmed by a methacholine challenge test ordered by a my pulmonologist. He also had me see an asthma specialist at the University Lung Center who also confirmed it as cough variant asthma but without allergies.
