Re: Am I crazy? Albuterol doesn't seem to work anymore.
Well, I actually don't take anything until I get sick like this last time. The cold went to my chest and I developed a cough. I've had pneumonia before, so I know to breathe deep and to cough up whatever I can. The weird thing, was while I was sick, when I would take the albuterol and the symbacort, when I would breathe deep I would cough so much I couldn't control it. I didn't seem to be coughing up anything, just coughing uncontrolably, like my lungs were having "spasms".
My only asthma symptoms are coughing, a little wheezing, so I don't do any exersize that makes me cough. I don't run, but I do walk on a treadmill occasionally.
I have an appointment with the dr that diagnosed my asthma tomorrow. I want to get my medications straightened out. I took Asmanex for a while, (several months) but I wasn't having any trouble so I stopped it and couldn't tell any difference. I just think I need to learn when things are bad enough to use an inhaler and how long because I don't think I need it full time.
