  • Are you using a corticosteroid for your asthma? After each use, you are supposed to rinse out your mouth thoroughly. This can cause the same reactions you are speaking of. I take Dulera, but it tends to actually make me more shaky than my Albuterol. Talk to the Dr. about switching you to Singulair. That has helped me in the past.

  • What you are describing is definitely asthma. Talk to your doctor. Maybe you need to up your dose. I used advair everyday and it was great.

  • I would be concerned about the "feels like something is stuck in the back of my throat" that has never been a symptom of my asthma. Talk to your doctor, this could be something entirely different.

  • Answers could depend on your age. Have you ever had this before? How long has this lasted? Does it tend to get better or worse after certain activities or times of the day? Keep a journal of these observations and share it with your doctor. If it's not gone in a week or two, definitely see a respiratory and allergy specialists. I'd make the appointments now since they usually take a few weeks anyway to schedule. Then, you can cancel later if it gets better.

  • Could be allergy making your asthma worse. Bottom line go to your doctor. No one on here can help you.
