Asthmatics of the CTF world - UNITE!

Recommended Posts

Anyone else around here part of the inhaler squad?

What do you find helps?

What do you find makes you worse?

Asthma is one of the most common diseases around, and SELF management is a massive part of treatment, so having people to chat to about it can really help. So yeah... chat away!

I luckily have exercise induced asthma so I really can't even die from it (well it's not likely) so I don't have to use an inhaler, you just end up spitting blood if you run too hard

Yeah, it's called exercise induced asthma. The more I run the more my lungs constrict so sometimes (like during football games) when you have to push yourself you break your limit and that happens. Asthma sucks >.<

Oo... I've never heard of that before! That is not something that should happen with asthma - and you should be pretty worried if it does!

Makes you spit blood? What kind of exercise induced asthma do YOU have?

They do give you inhalers - I have albuterol.

I think you need to see a new doc....

If I was you I would see a different doctor, spitting blood is never asthma. Plus if you had a bad asthma attack and didn't take your inhaler you wouldn't be able to keep running, so that makes it even less likely its asthma and more important to go see a doc!

Fair enough, your choice but remember that asthma can be fatal, in fact the harsh truth is that two people a day die from it in the UK!
