Re: How do you get a nebuliser?

You can buy a nebulizer without a prescription (either online or at a pharmacy like CVS- ask the pharmacist.) You will just have to call your Dr for a prescription for the medicine, I'm sure you...

Re: Singulair with a cold

It's common for asthma symptoms to get worse with a cold. You may have to increase your other medications (like Flovent or Advair) when you are sick.

Re: asthma and dermatitis

I get eczema on my inner arms and on my back. I HATE IT! It's so itchy. I had it for years before I even knew what it was. I went to the dermatologist to get a mole removed and they were like,...

Re: Can Exposure to Allergens Gradually Desensitise?

I had a cat since I was a kid and although I am allergic to all cats, I had a lesser reaction to him. It was when I got my Siamese that I noticed a big difference in my allergies. I still have him...

Re: Flu & Asthma?

You can't seem to catch a break! I just got my nebulizer meds refilled a few weeks ago in case I catch anything this winter. It's a huge help. I don't have any suggestions but I just wanted to say...

Re: No energy :-(

It sounds like your asthma is not controlled. Are you on a daily maintenance medication, like Flovent or Advair? I would suggest talking to your Doctor about your medications. I have only...

Re: Sick After Allergy Shots

It may not have been related, but I got a pounding headache after my first couple allergy shots. No sore throat though. You should mention it to the nurse next time you go in if you think it's...

How long your allergy shot buildup take?

As I've posted before, I started my allergy shots late March. At this point I am about halfway through my buildup (I'm halfway through the 3rd set of vials, 2 more sets of vials to go.)

Re: How do you know when to go to the ER?

I was also having an anxiety attack when I went to the ER. Although my lungs were recovering from the asthma attack, the panic attack made me feel as though I still wasn't able to breathe. Since...

Re: Asthma issues

A nebulizer is a great suggestion! I also used one during an ER visit and liked it so much that I asked my doctor for a prescription. My asthma gets very bad when I have a chest cold or bronchitis...

Re: Dizziness before an attack?

My attacks feel similar to yours. When I first starting having them I didn't realize what they were, since they weren't what I pictured as an asthma attack. But I think it's different for everyone....
