My 15 year old has been asthmatic for a few years. I am having a problem with convincing him to exercise and I feel guilty because of what it does to him when he does exercise. When he exerts himself he has chest pains, face turns very red, short of breath and feeling weak. I know the common sense thing is that he has to exercise but how do I (and him) get beyond the paranoia that something will happen if he pushes himself? I have asthma too but it is part of my COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, polycythemia and pulmonary hypertension. I do not have a choice in limiting my physical activities. My lung capacity is severely restricted. I have upper and lower airway obstruction. I want my son to get a handle on his asthma before he ends up in the place I am. Should I ask the doctor to put him on some maintenance medication to go with the rescue inhaler? Will that help him to be able to exert himself more?
