Re: asthma and flutters

I doubt that this would be due to asthma, but I had a similar situation & found out that it was caffeine. My dr suggested cutting it out to see what happened & it stopped right away. I was not always that way, just as I got in my mid 40's or so.

Re: asthma and flutters

Are you taking meds for the congestion? That can be the cause as well. I got off all caffeine and changed my allergy meds 25 years ago due to this same issue.

Re: asthma and flutters

try switching that cup of coffee to decaf & see if it helps. I know it seems like 1 cup couldn't do it, but trust me, it does it to me. Even a coke or iced tea will do it.
