Not the medication: Something (eg. Viral infection, post nasal drip, smog, acid reflux) is triggering your asthma. Its presence will continue to trigger the attack. The medication will control each episode but unless the trigger is removed, your symptoms will continue or worsen; see your doctor to help determine if your meds need to be adjusted or another med started. ...Read more

Should I use my inhaler after having a acid reflux attack can breath that good and I can still taste acid in my throat ! ?

Should I use my inhaler after having a acid reflux attack can breath that good and I can still taste acid in my throat ! ?

Acid Reflux: You are likely having some reactive bronchospasm. In which case the rescue inhaler (bronchodilator) will help you but the best way to manage your reflux related symptoms, is to have a tight control over it by diet and possibly medication. If you smoke, STOP. You clearly have a history of reactive airway disease. Use the inhaler if it helps the breathing but its not the long-term answer. ...Read more

Coughing blood?: If you are coughing up blood, called hemoptysis, you need to be evaluated by your doctor. The most common cause is bronchitis but malignancy needs to be ruled out. Gerd can cause bronchospasm, like asthma does, but neither should cause you to cough up blood. If you are short of breath or coughing up large amounts of blood, then go to the er. If you smoke, you need to quit asap. ...Read more
