Mild form asthma: There is a very mild form of asthma called Exercise Induced Asthma. Best way to check is to see your MD and get a Peak Flow meter - you puff into it to measure lung strength before exercise - then with symptoms. It can tell you if that's the problem.

Sometimes when im falling to sleep i run out of breath and wake up. Can that be related to asthma.
No: The more likely cause is that you are experiencing a gasping arousal from sleep apnea.

First : First of all, it sounds like your asthma is uncontrolled. There are many different treatment options to decrease the number of asthma attacks that you are experiencing. There are controller medications that can be used daily. These include inhaled steroids that are typically taken once or twice a day. Your doctor will be able to assess your symptoms, and frequency/timing of the attacks, and prescribe you with an appropriate medication regimen. As far as your issue during intercourse, in order to decrease the likelihood of an asthma attack you can take 2 puffs of your rescue inhaler (usually albuterol) 15 minutes prior to intercourse. This should help. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
