Hi, I am hoping some of you may be able to help me. I have very recently been diagnosed with asthma, initially thought it was exercise induced but it is just asthma which gets much worse with exercise, not too sure of the difference.
I am due to get a steroid inhaler tomorrow but for the last few weeks have been using the reliever, lots! I was wondering how frequently during a run other people have to take their inhalers. I seem to need mine every 20 mins or so and then at the end. This seems excessive when I read the leaflet and the nurse, although very helpful, didn't really seem to have a lot of advice about the use during a run.
As I said any advice would be welcome as I have managed to drop at least 2minutes per mile this year through breathing problems. As I was already a 'back of the pack' plodder there isn't really anywhere else for me to go!
