Can Asthma Come Back After It Went Away
Not uncommon: When asthma is diagnosed after age 3 years, some of those with mild asthma may "outgrow" it usually around puberty. However those with moderate to severe asthma tend to have it for a long time. As for why does it come back, that's a question we are still searching for an answer. The answer may be from a viral respiratory tract infection rekindling the airway inflammation or hormonal changes. ...Read more

I had asthma as a child but have had no problems in over 5 years. Is it possible that it will come back?
Is that true that if the childs asthma is gone before 7 yrs old, it will never come back anymore?

Can being asthmatic increase your heart rate. My asthma started to come back and my heart rate is faster.?
Yes: A person who is an asthmatic and is not completely controlled with preventative medications may be slightly lower in oxygen and therefore the heart rate may increase & remain elevated. Different rescue medications like salbutamol inhaler and theophylline (latter is not used often now a days) may also stimulate the heart. Once the asthma is well controlled then the heart rate responds normally. ...Read more
Can childhood asthma come back from prolonged stress? Is adrenal fatigue possible? How to strengthen adrenals?
Yes. No. GoodHabits?: Childhood asthma can come back, but if one is no longer a child, then it is just called asthma. The other way of looking at it is: the childhood asthma never completely left. Asthma symptoms come and go, so it's not surprising to come back. Adrenal Fatigue is a name some people use to describe some types of symptoms, but is not a real disorder. The symptoms are real; the "disorder" is not real. ...Read more
Had sports induced asthma when I was younger. No problems in 5/6 years. Lately not breathing right when running. Could it have gone away and come back?
Hyperreactive airway: Once the alveoli, the little air sacs in your lungs develop muscle tissue in them, they are always able to contract causing a spasm. This is called hyper reactive airway disease. It never goes away. When your lungs are stressed for example with exercise it can definitely come back. Seek your PCP or a pulmonologist, there are several effective drugs to manage this. ...Read more

Pharyngitis: This is most commonly due to viral infection and the degree and rapidity of recovery will vary with the virus involved, the person infected, whether or not they smoke or are exposed to second hand smoke and other factors.

Minimal chest hit a month ago. Asthma symptoms come back a little after. Get tired faster. Heart rateincreased. Could trauma have caused something else?
Got a tickly dry feeling in my lungs, sort of like my lungs are thirsty. Used my asthma inhaler (I get mild asthma sometimes) but it's come back again?
Asthma: The asthma rescue inhaler should last a few hours. If you need it more than just 2-3 times per week then we need to step up treatment and add a controller medicine typically, a steroid inhaler which is safe. Continue this until your doctor says to stop. Most likely, this is just temporary. ...Read more
Iv been for a chest X-ray it was clear did some breathing test and blood test ther testing my for asthma or COPD but they have ask me to come back?

Is it true that asthma never goes away but can change in severity? Had it when I was younger, it got better but now seems to be coming back.
Asthma Variable: Yes, we sometimes see this that asthma as a child has a period of improvement, but during later adulthood can resurface during pregnancy or other life events. Good to get back with your primary care doctor and put together an asthma action plan again, review your medicines, and when to take which one. A peak flow meter is helpful to assess the severity of your episode. Be sure and use spacer! ...Read more
My breathing sometimes gets heavier/harder at night and occasionally, but rarely in day. I had asthma until I was about 14. Could it be coming back?
Yes, it could: While asthma can go "dormant" like a volcano, it can return! Frequently the symptoms are worse at night, with exercise or with a cold. A simple breathing test called spirometry and if available Nitric Oxide breath analysis in addition to an evaluation by a doctor can assist to determine if asthma is again active or if another problem is surfacing. ...Read more
I use to have asthma as a kid and I feel like its coming back but my doctor said I was okay. What precautions should I take?
Had asthma when I was younger, now seems to be coming back. Doctor gave me an inhaler but doesn't seem to be working, are there different asthma meds?
Breathing great, dr told me 2 wean off Alvesco (ciclesonide) inhaler. 3 days off & asthma coming back. I have Hashimotos, TSH. 3 now. Some anxiety + GERD too.
Go back on it: Unless you have mostly avoided the allergen triggers or the asthma was triggered by a viral infection, the recurrence of asthma should be expected once off of a controller drug.- think of it as insulin for diabetes. If you want to reduce the drug intake, consider an allergy consult: to identify the triggers and perhaps a course of allergy shots to modify the disease in a long term basis. ...Read more
I had ashma and allergies when until I was 9ish then it seemed to go away. Is it possible that ashma and allergies change or come back 20 years later?
I have astma and I'm shortness of breath and I have hay fever I've had a chest X-ray it come back all clear what can I have to help me?
See allergist: Chest x-ray cannot diagnose asthma although the presence of air trapping may be suggestive. If your family doctor can't help you, you will need to see an allergist. That you have hay fever points to allergy as the likely mechanism for your asthma as well. Rx options include avoidance, medications, and/or allergy shots. ...Read more

I used to have asthma when I was a little kid. It went away after using my inhaler for a while. But now I think it came back. Is that possible?
Yes: There is no known cure for asthma but patients can have very long symptom-free intervals and then, suddenly, have an exacerbation. So, it is very possible to have asthma symptoms in childhood followed by a lengthy remission and then have symptoms again. See your physician as there are many meds available to control your symptoms. ...Read more
