Asthma Is A Bummer With A Cold!
January 20, 2017 6:02pm CST
Having visited the Dr. this afternoon, I was validated in my concerns. It appears that my Asthma is significantly aggravated by the cold I am dealing with. The god news is that It is not quite as bad as when I was first diagnosed. The bad news is now I am on Predizone 50 Mg for 5 days to help fight the situation. So in the past it has been 20 Mg 3 times a day for 5 days then another 5 days to get off the steroids. So now it is a wait and see situation. If it doesn't get better then I will be back to being concerned about hospitalization. A cold alone is ok I can deal with that but inter-disperse Asthma problems (not being able to take deep breaths) and it is very painful. Have you ever experienced this? If so what do you suggest to add to my breathing exercises, Prednizone and regular asthma medications?

Having asthma and now COPD I feel for you. It may sound crazy but moderate exercise helps. A breathing technique I use is - Breathe in through the nose hold for a second then breathe gently out through the mouth. There are a few techniques on the Internet. Hope you feel better soon.

@taramarie39 My daily regimen is 500/50 Advair 2x daily and singular is a daily med. Then there is Pro Air for Rescue inhaler. They had to give me steroids in addition because of the cold. I understand the difficulty. Never tried Q Var. What is it?
