    Breathing problems

    First off, I was diagnosed with Asthma when I was 12. I went on medication and used an inhaler and my problems went away. Now I am 25 and I am having horrible breathing problems. I'm having multiple asthma attacks everyday and waking up every night needing to use my inhaler. The weird thing about this is whenever I travel to somewhere new, my symptoms go away completely. I traveled from Chicago to Ohio, and for the week I was in Ohio I didn't have any breathing problems. I traveled from Chicago to Colorado and the same thing happened, breathing was totally fine. I recently moved from Chicago to Colorado and after a few weeks my breathing problems have come right back. I went back home to visit family in Chicago and ended up getting a really bad head cold (stuffy/runny nose and coughing phlegm up non stop) while I was there. Upon returning back to Colorado my head cold began to subside, and my breathing was the best its been in years. I felt like I got all the mucus out of my nose and lungs due me blowing my nose and coughing up phlegm all day long from being sick. However once my sickness went away completely I have gotten right back to wheezing all the time. I am constantly swallowing mucus from my nose now because it won't come out of my nose. Once I started swallowing this mucus is when I feel like my asthma symptoms have come back. Anyone know why my breathing would be temporary better when I visit new places? Could my breathing problems be just from all this mucus build up and not asthma at all?

    I would explore the possibility of being allergic to bedding and other things. Finding out what bothers you and then avoiding it though is the least workable option. Much better is getting rid of the excess candida in the intestines (if you have it. most people do) that junks up the liver and keeps it from functioning fully.

    When you go to a different area, you leave all of the allergens and pollen that triggers your asthma, until you become allergic/asthmatic to the different allergens and pollen in the new place. Then when you return home your body combines the asthma sensitivities from your new area with your old area, causing all kinds of miseries!

    There are four major treatments for asthma. Avoidance of asthma triggers; asthma desensitizing injections (SCIT); asthma desensitizing sublingual (SLIT) treatments; and asthma medications.

    My allergies/asthma have gotten considerably better thru avoidance of foods and chemicals and other triggers; plus having both SCIT and SLIT asthma desensitizing treatments. My asthma is now very well controlled by inhaling Fluticasone propionate twice a day.

    Have you had any allergy/asthma desensitizing treatments?

    You need to see an immunologist for allergy testing and a pulmonary function test for the asthma. Different plants and allergens are in different places so you need to know what your triggers are and what is prevalent in the areas you are in. Get on the correct meds - or therapy - and you should be fine.

    Once asthma....always asthma. And seems you've been sans treatment while your symptoms were being tolerated and not noted. Plus... any irritation due to environment, allergies, viruses or infection will compound and tax the limitations of what was once none to minimal symptoms.

    What inhalers are you on exactly?

    Definitely see a specialist for asthma work-up.. Have a chest and sinus x-ray and nasal swab for probable infection. Have allergy testing and blood testing.
    Get on antibotics if you have infection.
    Try Singulair and get on proper inhalers...steroid/long last bronchodilator combo or separate inhalers so that both can be adjusted as needed, plus a fast acting rescue reliever.

    Please let us know how you're doing.
