Yes. Persons whose asthma began before puberty can often grow out of it, especially with appropriate treatment, though this is by no means guaranteed.
Not really. In general, "true" asthma is never really outgrown. It can become much milder over time, and sometimes appear to be outgrown.
Tricky question. Many people "outgrow" their childhood asthma. This is really not the case but it can remain dormant lifelong. Exercise induced asthma may be caused by outdoor pollution or allergens (pollen, etc), cold air (skiing) or swimming (chlorine). Minimizing your "trigger (s)' may allow you to "outgrow" you type of asthma. Good luck.
Possible but. Unlikely. First you need to get examined to make sure that you are not having asthma even if you don't feel it. If your lung function is normal otherwise, then the exercise-induced asthma may depend on the intensity and duration of the exercise. Elite athletes may suffer exercise-induced bronchoconstriction which can go away by reducing the intensity or using a bronchodilator.
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. Many times asthma symptoms improve during the teen years and we see symptoms develop again as an adult.
Mostly. We never speak of people outgrowing asthma. However, exercise-induced asthma is the mildest form, and often becomes quiescent in the twenties and thirties. Aggressively controlling your allergies, by minimizing your exposure to the allergens your allergist has identified as the problem, and using medications to control any remaining symptoms, will increase your chances that your asthma won't recur.
My granddaughter has exercise induced asthma. Can throwing a fit, crying, yelling, kicking, etc cause an attack? Even a very mild one?
It can. Emotional disturbance can trigger an asthma attack even in people who do not have exercise induced asthma. It would be prudent to consult her pediatrician.
Asthma and Emotions. You care very caring Grandmother! The symptoms of EIA are coughing, wheezing, a feeling of tight chest, or shortness of breath. Fast activities, exercising near lawns just mowed, polluted air may trigger asthma symptoms. Strong emotions trigger the release Histamine and Leukotrienes, which can trigger the narrowing of airway. See a Child Psychiatrist for Individual and family Therapy.
I have exercise induced asthma and possible hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. When I exercise how can I tell which one of these causes a problem?
Difficult. To sort out. See a cardiologist for further evaluation and testing.
Hard to tell. If you wheeze, it is probably the asthma. Shortness of breath may be either. Cardiopulmonary testing can be done, mostly at academic centers, where they will be able to tell you what is the problem exactly.
SOB. You might. Are you fat? Are you out of shape, is the air polluted? Are you allergic? Other factors have to be considered but exercise asthma occurrs after exercise and is associated with true asthma symptoms of wheezing and rather severe shortness of breath usually.
Possibly... If your shortness of breath is only with exercise, it may be due to exercise-induced asthma. However, there are many other causes of shortness of breath occurring either with exercise or even at rest. Since shortness of breath can be life-threatening, it is imperative that you have this evaluated by your doctor asap. If your shortness of breath is worsening, go to the er.
If short of breath? If you get short of breath when exercising with wheezing, than you may have exercise induced asthma. But you can also get sob when exercising from heart disease as well and due to copd Get it checked by your doctor.
Asthma. Wheezing on end-expiration--at the end of breathing out. There may be weakness or pallor also.
Cough and wheeze. Eib (exercise-induced bronchospasm) can occur with asthma or without asthma symptoms without exercise. Typically, children may cough, not necessarily wheeze, during aerobic exercise and/or a few minutes after such exercise or just running around the house. If symptoms occur during exercise, it is more likely to be asthma. If only afterwards, "pure" eib. Easy fatigue with exercise may occur too.
Exercise asthma. They both can cause you to be out of breath but exercise asthma is associated with true asthma, which causes more severe shortness of breath as well as wheezing.
Sometimes... Sometimes, the shortness of breath with exercise can be similar with deconditioning as well as asthma. However, with pulmonary function testing, your doctor can often distinguish the two. If not, see a pulmonologist since there is more advanced testing available that can definitely tell the difference.
Is there a risk taking atrovent (ipratropium) in prevention of exercise induced asthma if the asthma attack doesn't occur?
No risk. Albuterol is what you rather need before exercise, maybe you already know that, goodluck.
Medication. Asthma medications can be used to prevent and treat exercise induced asthma. See your doctor for treatment.
