asthma and sleeping

I have yet to be diagnosed but I'm in the process of it. I've had horrid bronchitis twice this year, and this time put on flovent and albuterol which have made a HUGE difference. I'm going for allergy testing next week. I've had on going symptoms for years and pretty sure its pointing to asthma.

I'm normally a really crappy sleeper. I wake up every hour or two and am bleery all day. I always have dark circles under my eyes. When I'm sick my sleep is even worse.

Now, since taking these asthma drugs, I'm sleeping SO well. waking up once at night and going right back to sleep. The dark circles under my eyes are gone and I look so healthy. Does this sound typical?

Re: asthma and sleeping

Sounds like you had untreated/undiagnosed asthma and now that it is being properly treated it is making a HUGE difference for you!

And THAT is AWESOME!! That is what all of us with asthma hope for - RELIEF!!!! And better sleep!
