Inhaler ? : If you are tight with a history of asthma, a trial of an inhaled breathing treatment may improve your discomfort. If that doesn't work, check your peak flow with the doctor, or get you own cheap peak flow meter - they are made out of cardboard and are a cheap and easy way to make sure you are clear
