I was recently diagnosed with EIA and allergic rhinitis. I've had allergies for as long as I can remember. Lately, I've noticed that when I'm exposed to a trigger my reaction is now more of the asthma kind( coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, rapid breathing...) rather than the allergy kind( sneezing, runny nose, congestion...) When I was diagnosed in Janurary this year My doctor gave me albuterol( 2 puffs 4X a day as needed) and he made a point to tell me " You won't need it that much." Well, I do!!! I suspect that what I may be dealing with is allergic asthma ( moderate?) and I'm thinking I may need something more to control my asthma better. I just think that if we're dealing with EIA that I'd only do my inhaler before I exercise and maybe on occassion after. Does anyone know?? or can anyone tell me what I need to do? I do have an appointment with my Doc. next week and we WILL have a discussion.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
