I am 21 years old and have always had allergy problems although they have gotten significantly worse as I've gotten older. A couple years ago an allergist diagnosed me with asthma. I also found out that I am allergic to dust, ragweed and cigarette smoke to name a few. When I am in a dusty place I feel my chest tighten, it hurts to breathe, my throat feels sore and I am somewhat short of breath. I've been around a lot of dust lately (plus it's ragweed season) and my chest feels strange again. I cough and it feels like something is rattling way down deep. Allergies seem to trigger this and I"m not sure if this is the asthma or what. My family doctor gave me a prescription for ventillen (sp?) quite a while ago. It seems to help a little when I am having a coughing fit (that's been happening frequently too). Aside from the allergies, I can have coughing fits at any time if I do anything strenuous like running or even just laughing for a long period of time when I'm hanging out with my friends. I would really like to know if there is a way to control these symptoms. I feel really drained lately and I can't help but wonder if its my lack of asthma treatment that is causing it.
(one more thing: Sometimes I lay awake at night because my breathing just doesn't feel right. I breathe really fast and I can't fall asleep because of it, is that a symptom too?)
