Does anyone here have nonallergic asthma?

My doctor told me the other day I had nonallergic asthma; I was quite suprised because I thought asthma and allergies went hand-in-hand. I was wondering if anyone else had this type of asthma.

Re: Does anyone here have nonallergic asthma?

No, they don't necessarily go hand in hand. I had allergies from birth to age 50 before a bout of walking pneumonia dealt me asthma. And my allergens rarely ever set off my asthma. Asthma issues will me seem to climatic - too hot and humid days mostly.

Re: Does anyone here have nonallergic asthma?

I too have allergies, but I have never had allergens trigger my asthma. I have triggers such as extreme cold air, polluted air, and chemicals with additional aggrevation from acid reflux.

I have no known allergies. My trouble with asthma began in conjunction with a series of respiratory infections. My biggest triggers are cold air and smoke.

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.

I've had non-allergic related asthma since birth ..10% of asthma suffers are non allergie related. It really seems to confuse the average doctor and we seem more prone to humidity related attacks (my pumologist said that ).
