I'm still new at this asthma business. I have never had a serious, life threatening attack, and the asthma doesn't seem to be associated with allergy. I'm in a quandary. My doctor has said, the more I use my rescue inhaler, the more I will need it. Which makes me think I shouldn't use it unless the situation is dire.
But the very changeable weather of the last four days (at least that's what I'm blaming) has brought a return of symptoms. Mild, I think. Some chest tightness, a little cough–mostly I just feel wiped out, tired, but not sleepy.
I know the rescue inhaler would make me feel better. But is there a downside to using it? Or have I misunderstood the doctor?
What do you think?
