Feeling like I can't get my lungs completely full of air
Hey everyone. I was diagnosed with asthma several years ago. I have trouble breathing a lot. I always feel like I can't get my lungs completely full of air unless I take a treatment with my nebulizer and albuterol. Is this normal?

I second that opinion that it's not normal. See a doctor, a lung doctor to see if you may have other problems developing, such as COPD. The local doctors I've found are not specialists, they can prescribe general advice. If a problem persists you should see a specialist as the local doc may give you the it okay, very unlikely to be anything but obviously if something persists there is something going on.
