I actually have it. I teach dance and exercise, and it got so that I couldn't teach because I was coughing uncontrollably. The doctor diagnosed my problem, prescribed a couple inhalers, and after a year or so of using them to control the symptoms, I discovered that I no longer needed to use them all the time but only when there is a flare up. I do avoid being out in the wind, and I find if I exercise in the cold that I may have a problem.
