Posted , 4 users are following.


I have allergy and asthma started 5 years ago when I was 19 years old(Male) in June 2013 . First come sneezing, then allergic rhinitis, then cough and lastly Shortness of breath (breathing difficuly). In that time I have lived in a house with full of dust.

 I have used allopathy, homeo and ayurvedic medicine. I Have used inhaler and homeo medicine for 2 years and asthma get controlled almost in November 2015 but in January 2016 started diarrhea mainly loose stool in the morning I have seen many gastroenterologist but it can't controlled and finally in the end of 2017 I have realized  the reason behind my loose stool is stress and anxiety ( In the time of 2016 and 2017 my asthma in controlled state I only use inhaler when I have asthma attack ).

And in the beginning of 2018 I have visited a psychiatrist then he prescribed me Clonil 25 mg tablet ( used for OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder) and depression, I Have fear of eating foods from outside, fear of diseses, fearing of eating food in plastic plates ….etc)  and my loose stool get controlled , but the thing is asthma come again, I visited a pulmonologist he prescribed me budamate 400,inhaler four doses a day . now I am using this inhaler for two months, but shortness of breath occurs almost every day (My chest get filled with mucus every day it don’t go outside, right now I don’t have any cough)  So please help me to control my asthma..

    First of all, I have had asthma  allergies for  60+ years, which started with allergic skin breakouts (exema)and asthma at 7 years old. It has been severe steroids dependent for most of those years . I have had side effects, been to hospital many times.take lots of medicine , inhalers, nebulizers and c- pap so I  have plenty of experience to reply to you. 

    You were 19 when all this started and you’re 24 ish now. It has gotten worse over these 5 years. 

       You can get this under control and lead a good life  adapting your work life and social life  to include family and friends.  Now you are trying anything and everything because you are anxious and depressed. Who wouldn’t be? You probably won’t be when you see progress. I take  generic Ativan and Zoloft everyday and thank God for it. 

    Now you must  get over  being  afraid of so much stuff , so use the meds to help you.

    Get some to clean up your living space then you must keep it reasonably clean. Use a mask and  low fragrance cleaners change linens and clothes clean. No  fragrances,no smoking of anything in apt or car  ,restaurant 

     Go to pulmonologist and  Internist and allergist. Stop all other herbs, teas  etc . Try  relaxing techniques , water

    exercise if not much chlorine , physical therapy. and massage therapy.

    And for loose stools, use less spices, choose healthier foods and  take probiotics to rebuild a healthier gut, and meds from doctor. Buy allergy pills, Mylanta, for sour  stomach, Imodium for

    diarrhea  and take prednisone  and / or  antibiotics to

    get over a bad spell. 

    You can get better.👌

    Because you are young, you may resist taking meds or taking them regularly  or calling the Dr. When  you get a cold etc  and you asthma kicks in.  You are responsible for your overall health

    I have had asthma for the past 15 years. Never have really gotten great results with my inhalers and I have tried them all I think. I do get relief but have always had tightness and shortness of breath anyway. Just a few days ago I was researching anything new for asthma and came across CBD oil. It is cannabinol but contains no THC so it does not give any “high” affect at all. I purchased some of the oil in the town I live in but can be bought online as well. I have not been able to breath this well since I was diagnosed 15 years ago. It is truly a miracle. I know I have only used it for a few days but it is amazing! I have not stopped using my inhaler but maybe someday I will be able to. Also in your case I will add that it definitely has a calming affect and is used to treat anxiety as well. Best of luck to you!

    There are many causes of breathing problems. Some people have difficulty breathing when they get a cold. Others have trouble breathing because of occasional bouts of acute sinusitis. Sinusitis can make it difficult to breathe through your nose for a week or two until the inflammation subsides and the congested sinusesbegin to drain.
