Today when I went out to the movies with my friends I started wheezing and felt really dizzy. My doctor prescribed me albuterol so I took one dose of it and felt a little better. The movie was a comedy and whenever I laughed I would start wheezing again. I am also taking Singulair and Zyrtec which I figured should be keeping my breathing difficulities at bay..but now this. I don't know what else I should do. Here is my problem...I have no insurance at all until the end of summer so I cant exactly see a doctor about this. All I can do is keep taking albuterol and talk to the doctor about it when I finally get insurance again. Hopefully it wont get worse.

I don't know if this has anything to do with this, but I just recently moved to a house that is 108 years old and the previous owners had cats and dogs and when I got there I had to rip up carpeting because it was matted with fur and dust. To top it all of the basement had flooded and mold is growing in the basement and the vents that are throughout the whole house are connected to the basement.

I am just so confused because I have never wheezed before, I just get short of breath sometimes. But recently I have been coughing alot, getting short of breath more often taking my inhaler twice almost everyday and now I just had my first wheezing episode.

I guess my question is..does this sound like Asthma? I have no clue and my doctor didn't either. Since I have no insurace..what can I really do about it anyways? I have enough inhalers to get me through the summer, but they don't always fix the entire problem (but they do help). Also which works better...meter dose inhalers or nebulizers? The neb med is alot cheaper than the inhalers.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
