I currently work at a sky high sports which is a trampoline place and we have this thing called a foam pit, and every now and then we send some one in to "Fluff" the foam pit which means fill in any holes that have been created throughout the day by the kids jumping in continuesly, and today when i got to work they said it was my turn. i usually stay out of the foam pit because i get stuck all the time but my manager in training insisted that i had to do it. so between getting stuck, breathing in the foam dust and its a workout to move around in the pit, i ended up getting out of the pit and gasping for air.

i somehow made it back to my car to get my rescue inhaler which is pro air, after 20 min of sobbing and gasping for air and god knows how many hits of my inhaler i took, i finally somewhat went back to breathing normally n being calmed down. i know taking my rescue inhaler that many times isnt healthy as i know the steroids make ones body shaky for a while but every now and then during the rest of my 8.5 hr shift my chest felt tight and it was hard to take deep breaths so i kept taking hits of my inhaler during the day.

how long is this tight ness gonna possibly going to last? i havent had a bad asthma attack in a long time and had no idea foam dust would trigger it at all. i'm usually triggered by heavy cigerette smoke just.
I agree that you should ore medicate before having to do that again. And like was said before I would give it 24-48 hours before you are feeling normal again.
