      Look into an anti-inflammatory diet. The drugs didn't work for me either. That was 20 years ago. Now I control the asthma by controlling what I eat. The drugs have side effects you don't want. The drugs gave me Osteoporosis which I'm fixing with an AlgaeCal supplement and OsteoStrong sessions. It looks like it will take about 4 years at the rate my Osteoporosis is diminishing with this approach. Not covered by insurance but it works. My opinion is that the drugs just make you sick in a different way. If you want to actually become healthy the Western medical system doesn't help--they just give you a bandaid to suppress symptoms and then you're on the drugs for the asthma the rest of your life plus more drugs to put a bandaid on the problems the first drugs caused. Vicious circle. Best wishes to you in your quest to find the underlying cause of your problems and actually become well

      Hey, I have been experiencing the same. Go see an allergist if you can and check what you’re allergic to. Allergies cause asthma flare up for me. If you can keep your allergies under control, it will help your asthma as well!

      Call your primary doctor and let her/him know your concern. Maybe it's worth a referral to an asthma specialist. If you do have an asthma doc. Make an appointment.

      the albuterol inhaler you have on your profile is for quick relief mostly /after/ your asthma has already started acting up, but there are other preventative inhalers and medications that you’d take on a 1-2 times daily schedule that can prevent asthma flare ups. i cycled through like 5+ different inhaler brands that all operated differently growing up before settling on symbicort morning and night which has worked for me for the last 8 or so years. also montelukast nightly but i’ve been on that since i was 4 and don’t remember what my asthma was like before it. you may also have to try different brands for ~a year at a time to see which works for you and which doesn’t. also, when using your albuterol inhaler be sure to use a spacer, not using a spacer means the medication will mostly end up in your mouth and stomach rather than your lungs. it’s inconvenient but it’s more effective.

      I always go slow and take frequent breaks. It is a struggle though and I completely understand
