Wind triggers my asthma

Just need to vent, the wind kicked up really bad in Vegas today. So bad, I could taste the dirt in the air. I tried to refrain from being outdoors as much as I could today, but even my short time in the wind caused my asthma to flare up. Anyone else experience coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath from the wind? The wind, dust, ad rain really messed with me today, hoping to be breathing better tomorrow!!!

We don't have dusty wind out here on the East Coast but it sounds horrible!

What medication are you on and do you use it regularly.
As an Asthmatic myself for forty years, speaking from experience the correct medication taken daily should enable
you to cope with most enviromental conditions.
If you have to go out in these conditions perhaps you could tie a scarf around your mouth.
I wish you well,

Solofelix.

Re: Wind triggers my asthma

The winds in Vegas this week were pretty wicked.

I've been known to have asthma flares in the conditions you described. On days like that, I pull out one of my masks when I go out. One of my masks has a filter on it. I get funny looks, but it can be so hard on the body at times that I just don't always care anymore. I can put up with the Darth Vador jokes.... I can't put up with the not being able to breathe and coughing of the flares. They really wear me out.

How are you doing today? Are you using your inhaler regularly? Do you have a nebulizer at home? It might be worth asking for one at your next visit because it can help get the albuterol into your lungs a bit better.

Re: Wind triggers my asthma

I have trouble with the wind too. I limit my exposure as much as possible.

Hi Neighbor, I live in Phoenix and when the wind kicked up this week I immediately got sick. I'm on QTar, Pulimcort, a rescue inhaler and as of two days ago now have a Vios nebulizer at home delivering medicine to me. I feel your pain. For me the wind is a serious asthma trigger.
