Muscular strain: If the muscles are used to exert extra effort with breathing, this may result in muscle strain and fatigue. Your asthma should be reviewed and medications adjusted accordingly. A virtual consultation is available on Healthtap. Triggers such as dust, mold, pollen should be avoided. Irritants to the airway also include smoke, vaping, smoking. Please take Motrin for headaches, apply local heat.
