I have asthma and that means that I can’t
exercise or play sports. What do you mean? Many people with asthma find it difficult
to exercise. They may cough, develop chest tightness, wheezing,
or have shortness of breath. However, this doesn’t mean that you should
not exercise if you have asthma. In fact, exercising regularly is one of the
best things that you can do to keep your lungs and body healthy. If your asthma makes it hard for you to exercise,
then make sure you use your quick relief, or rescue medicine before you are active. This can be done by taking 2 puffs of your
inhaler, and remember to use your spacer everytime, at least 15 minutes before you exercise. If you do develop symptoms while you are exercising,
then it is very important that you stop and rest. You can use your rescue medication again even
if it has not been 4 hours. Make sure that your breathing has returned
to normal before you resume activity. Everyone with asthma should be able to exercise
and play sports. If you aren’t doing well, make sure that
you talk to your doctor so that you can find other treatment options. Because of my medicine I can play harder.
