I'm 54, don't smoke and have only an occassional beer. There's basically no stress in my life, as it's only my cat and I who share an apartment. (I'm divorced and my children have been on their own for years).
Could this possibly be nothing more than a bronchial disorder? Any professional advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated!
I developed an allergy to my cats ( a year after getting them) which got prgressively worse until I developed full blown asthma. I had an allergy asseseemtn (turns out i do have an allergy) but I dont have to get rid of my babies. What i do have to do is manage it.
I dont allow them into my bedroom and in the summer months, i give them a bath every so often (they loved that ha ha - had to buy a cage to do it).
I am ok now, but I do find that if i have a drink of alchohol it triggers a reflux in me, which triggers the asthma / wheezing. I find the link quite interesting so i avoid alchohol mostly (especially at home is not a good idea). If i do drink, take some gavastgon and inhale some ventulin and i sleep fine.
The most important thing is to keep your bedroom cat free!!!!
good luck :-)
