This is one particular problem where most of the people take it verylightly till it becomes serious or unable to manage. In my own experience,i took it very lightly and did not take enough care and only after suffering twice, I realised the seriousnessof the problem and after detailed discussion with family physisican, i learnt how easy it is to control and prevent iteith simple steps.

Iam also sufferer like you, i suggest first and foremost thing is to completely avoiding cold items like chilled water , drinks,refrigerated items.I started practicing the same and observing some better results. Breathing excercises is also very helpful for better lung function.

I also have wheezing problems caused by my asthma. After suffering with the problems for quite some time, I finally went to the doctor. I was first but on several inhalers and pills. Now I am also using a nebulizer. I still have days when it is worse than others, but it is more under control now that what it used to be.

Kelly, have you been referred to a specialist? These days, only very severe asthmatics should need inhalers, pills AND a nebuliser. I'm personally diagnosed as a severe asthmatic and have even been hospitalised with it, but my asthma is controlled by one preventative puffer - called Seretide in Australia. I can't remember the last time I wheezed. Local doctors often aren't very well informed on how to get asthma under control, or the latest treatments. It's worth paying the money for at least one specialist visit, just to get an accurate assessment of your condition. It could change your life!
