Could allergies and exercise induce asthma?

Could allergies and exercise induce asthma?

Yes: Allergies and exercise are 2 of the most common triggers for exacerbation of asthma symptoms. If your asthma is not well controlled and you have allergies, treatment of the allergies is an important part of asthma therapy. If exercise is making your breathing worse it doesn't mean you can't do it. It suggests that your asthma is not well controlled and this should be discussed with your doctor. ...Read more

Can humidity or humid weather, the smoke of incense, and machines that requires hight in amusement parks can worsen pulmonary HTN (moderate)?

Can humidity or humid weather, the smoke of incense, and machines that requires hight in amusement parks can worsen pulmonary HTN (moderate)?

Absolutely, yet PHTN: remains poorly understood with few good treatments. Common drivers include: (a) Smoking driving COPD (combination of bronchitis&emphysema) (b) recurrent venous clots which shed & go to the lungs, (c) ?ed blood flow to the lungs, such as a result of an atrial septal defect, (d) wind instruments etc All these issues = typically without symptoms until Pul HTN is quite advanced. http://goo.gl/Blh6rW. ...Read more

Can someone grow out of exercise induced asthma?

Possibly: Allergists typically will say that asthma or eia goes into "remission". It may become asymptomatic for a period of time, but we are always wary of a recurrence of symptoms.

What activities must somneone avoid with pulmonary hypertension?

What activities must somneone avoid with pulmonary hypertension?

Discuss with doctor: Limitations for pulmonary HTN could be summarized by "listen to your body". As there are many causes for pulmonary HTN the discussion of activity limitations should be with a physician familiar with the disease. Generally one should avoid salt and should note how quickly the heart rate raises with activity. Certainly actvities in high altitude should be avoided. ...Read more

Can carvedilol cause exercise induced asthma?

Can carvedilol cause exercise induced asthma?

Theoretically yes bu: Non-selective beta blockers tend to worsen asthma and ideally should be avoided. However you will need to weigh the risk'/benefit ratio of getting another drug to control your hypertension. A more cardioselective beta blocker can usually be tolerated by those with asthma reducing the 1 sec airflow rate by about 8% but paradoxically making the airway more responsible to bronchodilator. ...Read more

What causes hypotension during exercise or during exposure to heat? Not dehydration, thyroid, cardiac, pulmonary, or endocrine. BP normal otherwise.

What causes hypotension during exercise or during exposure to heat? Not dehydration, thyroid, cardiac, pulmonary, or endocrine. BP normal otherwise.

Vasodilation: Hypotension is by definition low BP and while BP may be normal you may experience lower BP relative to your normal when your vessels dilate in response to a rise in internal temperature. Cardiopulmonary, endocrine, anemia, dehydration and infection are potential causes, as are medication side effects. Note that you can be volume depleted -- with these symptoms -- and not technically dehydrated. ...Read more

Shortness of breath with minimal exertion activities, not a problem when exercising. Suffer from migraines and GERD. Early 20's and otherwise healthy.

Shortness of breath with minimal exertion activities, not a problem when exercising. Suffer from migraines and GERD. Early 20's and otherwise healthy.

Graduated exertion: If shortness of breath is due to a pathologic process (aka "disease"), it progressively worsens with increasing severity of exercise. If I understand you, you become breathless early on but, when you exercise more, it gets better or at least doesn't interfere (?) - to me, that suggests a "warm-up" phenomenon. This is physiologic, not pathologic (aka "normal). Increasing fitness should alleviate it ...Read more

Can exercise induced wheezing without asthma potentially be be caused by pulmonary hypertension? I have a small LA and LV and abormal septal motion

Mgt and workup: I agree that an asthma follow up appointment should be made, but your cardiac history also warrants further evaluation. If there is fluid around the airway, this may mimic asthma. A virtual appointment with EMR can be booked at Healthtap.com/DosanjhMD Code: NCYPHZ ...Read more
