About a week ago I started feeling sicker.

My Albuterol usage went up from one puff/day to 4-5 puffs/day and I just felt sicker and short of breath all the time.

My symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
- Itchy lungs, almost bordering a mild pricking pain in both my lungs
- Excessive mucous -- coughing it up and constantly clearing my throat.
- Nasal congestion

I have allergic asthma and had a really bad flare up at the beginning of the season, but as far as I know there hasn't been a huge change in allergens recently. Also I keep my apartment etc very clean.

I may have a cold but I can't tell. I feel like all my meds are covering up what would signify a cold and cold symptoms.

What I'm taking right now in terms of meds:
- Mucinex-D
- Symbicort twice a day
- Albuterol
- Veramyst
- Singulair
- Spiriva
- Budesonide Nebulizations (because of the increased shortness of breath)

Wondering if this is happening to anyone else in the NYC area?

Also would love your thoughts on when you think I should do a Prednisone burst. I'm trying to stay away because I was on it for 1.5 months during Spring.

I also agree that you should be seen right away to get this flare up under controll!! Also for me colds can make my asthma worse. Which sucks when every thing else out there seems to make it worse as well!! Hope you feel better and can get this flare up under controll soon!!
