Mine flairs up if I get overheated, so I have to be careful when I exercise.

I'm going to be very careful about this as I think ultimately that would be something to bring up with your doctor. I know a few years ago I was having issues that weren't solved with my inhaler which is how they found I have vocal chord dysfunction, so I imagine it could be something non-related to your asthma, period. Or perhaps there's a better medication out there that would work. Or, like you said it might just be that you're body's not used to this sudden change in activity and it will take some getting used to.

As I said, just throwing out suggestions. in an effort to be supportive. I think if it's that bad though it's something your doctor could better figure out.

I now have a job that requires me to climb a flight of stairs(25 stairs) at least 6 times a day (time clock is on 2nd level) and I am winded by the time I get to the top. I can feel my heart beating in my ear. I take 1 inhaler before I go to work, and a second one as I walk in the door, and no relief. I am beginning to wonder if it is something else. Am I just old, or out of shape? Think I might have to send a message to my PCP.

I have asthma that's pretty much well controlled but can flare up badly at times. I don't use my asthma as a long term reason not to exercise but I will say that there are time I need to stop or take things down a little bit. Again those are usually days with extenuating circumstances, such as wildfires are happening all over the state and there's extra smoke in the air.

My other thing with breathing and exercise is that I also have vocal chord dysfunction. It's when my vocal chords will suddenly decide they need to close (because they think their protecting my wind pipe from something). There are exercises I can do to keep this from happening so it's usually not a problem. Though there are some days when they just don't want to cooperate. For the longest time (before I new what VCD was) it was really frustrating because it makes me feel as if I can't get any air in when I inhale, so I wouldn't be able to exercise as effectively or at all, but I didn't know why. I have no qualms whatsoever taking things down a notch or stopping when my asthma gets really bad, but it was happening too much to be asthma and I didn't know how to address it. So it's nice now to know what's going on so I can figure out the best way to approach working out in light of both these conditions.

I have exercise induced asthma. If I don't take my inhaler 30 minutes before I go to the gym, it wont take long before I feel and hear the rattle in my chest. It doesn't get worse than that, but that is enough. I will not give up exercising because of this. There are too many worse diseases in my family history that could kill me before the asthma will.

Asthma is different for everyone. There is research about exercise induced asthma. I have NEVER heard any asthmatic use their condition as an excuse to not exercise. I believe asthma can be triggered by rigorous exercise If the inhaler is not utilized beforehand or the dose is not right for the individual.

I don't know what "people say" that. All I know is that I have severe asthma and it also gets worse when I exercise vigorously. My asthma is basically under control with medicine and inhalers but if I run a race I need to use my RI. If I am hiking or running under normal conditions it is not an issue. I do not believe in the "exercised induced asthma" excuse. Too many people use it as a reason not to exercise. Your asthma can and should be under control so that exercise is not a problem, normally. If it is not, then you need to find other options and or doctors.
Seriously, I use three inhalers as well as pills, I hike, run and bike all that I want. Without the meds I could not do anything vigorous. Always, always carry rescue inhaler.

Live your life as though you are obligated to make the world a better place. Make a difference today, be the one!

It is possible to have that happen, it has happened to me more than once. I am usually careful, but I never forget to have my inhaler around.

People say there is no such thing as exercise induced asthma but if I don't take my inhaler before working out, then I will get an asthma attack and it is what doctors instruct me to do (2 puffs before exercising).
