Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

Weighed Down
God, I hate this feeling. I haven't had asthma very much since I stepped up my exercise regimen. But this is a bad time of year and I've been fighting off a bug. So I slept poorly and woke to that sensation of having a heavy slab pressing in on my lungs. Once I get enough coffee into my body to relax my smooth muscles, the discomfort recedes. Unfortunately, though, my legs will continue to feel leaden throughout the day.

Is that how asthma affects you? Sometimes (most of the time) I have trouble moving my legs. The calves cramp around the ankles and it pains to walk. And my sleep isn't very good either. They gave me new maintenance medicine -- Flowvent or something. If I don't rinse my mouth out after using it, I can get thrush. So I'm mentally preparing myself still for yeast doom due to asthma. Ha.
I also take singulare and have my rescue albuterol inhaler.

Yes. I mean, when it's at its worst, I feel it most in my breathing. But the longer term effect of greatest note is a dead feeling in my legs.

I could never manage Flovent. It made me crazy. But I'm on a nasal steroid, Rhinocort, now that has helped me a lot. And I still have my albuterol, when I need it. I used it twice this morning.

How did flovent make you crazy?

I haven't tried to use it yet...

Manic, edgy. It's not supposed to do that. But it really unnerved me. Maybe I was inhaling the wrong dosage.
