Asthma issues after exercise - what should I do

Edited , 3 users are following.

Since being on lockdown I have been exercising in doors. Before exercise I take my inhaler. I also take my fostair regularly. During exercise I experience chest tightness, shortness of breath and cough which only lasts a few minutes after exercise. Yesterday this resulted in a five minute period of shortness of breath in which the salbutamol inhaler did not provide any relief. This has worried me. Should I be contacting GP/Nurse on phone for some asthma review advice over the phone?

    Hi Taylor, Whenever you have asthma & you're taking your regular meds & you start having NEW symptoms &/or the normal meds seem to not work, you should contact your DR...you could need to take another medication, or change the timing or dosage of your current meds, you may be having an underlying medical issue causing these new symptoms....Good Luck & BEST WISHES💒🎶🐾🌈🍀☮♾
