My period is 18 days late and I usually have a regular cycle. I am also getting asthma symptoms that I haven't had in years. Could the two be related?

My period is 18 days late and I usually have a regular cycle. I am also getting asthma symptoms that I haven't had in years. Could the two be related?

Not related: Asthma flare ups do not typically have an impact on menstrual cycles unless it was triggered by an infection, or if you are using oral steroids to control it. A more common cause of a late period would be pregnancy. ...Read more

I've been taking Effexor XR with good results for about 2 years. I also developed asthma symptoms about 2 years ago. Could they be connected?

I've been taking Effexor XR with good results for about 2 years. I also developed asthma symptoms about 2 years ago. Could they be connected?

Unlikely: This is not one of the common side effects of effexor. When it was "the state of the art" and i was using a lot of it with my patients, i never encountered this. However, when i look online, i see commentary on association of asthma with too rapid a taper. This is theoretically possible, as, when you are coming off of a high dose, it is possible that previous subtle bronchodilation stops. ...Read more

Should i see my doctor, been having asthma symptoms for about 2 weeks, taking saba 2-4 times a day but symptoms only mild, don't want to waste doctors?

4 months after a bad chest virus I have severe asthma symptoms. Is there anything i can do besides take medication? When will my lungs reset to normal

Duration can vary!: Good morning, the surface lining of our airway protects us from the effects of environments and agents we are constantly exposed to. An infection by a virus can destroy this layer, exposing the underlying nerves, which sends signals to contract and reduce the airflow, causing cough and wheezing, especially in those with asthma. Exercise can reduce airway tone, along with inhaled medications. ...Read more

I  was taking 80mg Propranolol day GP changed me to 2.5mg Bisopralol 4 puffs steroid 2puffs 4wks asthma ok,why So tired?

Check your heart: although partially controlled asthma, can cause this, you need to rule out any cardiac cause for your tiredness, has your GP tapered off the propranolol or stopped it abruptly? need to confer with the cardiologist especially that you had mitral vale repair lately, good to taper off the propranolol to gain better control of your asthma, but in concert with cardiology, which you need to see as well, ...Read more

What are the most common asthma symptoms?

Wheezing, SOB: Wheezing, cough, and shortness of breath (sob) are the classic symptoms of asthma. Most often, wheezing and shortness of breath follow the brief period of "cold" symptoms in infants/children. The cough is not so prominent as in bronchitis. Coughing or shortness of breath aggravated by excercise also raises suspicion of undiagnosed asthma. ...Read more
