  • I was just told last month that I have asthma. The doc said I should keep an inhaler with me. He also informed me that it was because i am obese. LOL

  • i'm 34 and have had asthma since i was 2. As i got older and especially when i moved out of my parents smokey house i got a little better. I took the 1 a day singular - which is the best, but kind of expensive. i don't take it anymore since i don't have insurance and have been doing ok. So ask your doc about Singular.

  • i wanted to know if other moms with asthma feel like they have to yawn all the time and when they breath have a feeling like they arent taking enough oxygen

  • Yes, piwife. I am the same way. I have just learned to deal with it. I do have a fast acting inhaler that I use when needed. And I take singular a PP mentioned (forgot about that earlier). It does help when I remember to take it.

  • You definitely need to examine your diet. Eliminate dairy; cut way back on, or eliminate meat; eat a diet based on whole foods: legumes, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

  • also, just read about someone who lost his asthma from living in a house that didn't use chemicals to clean with! vinegar and baking soda are all you really need most of the time!
