    I was told by a doctor a few years ago that due to my life-long playing of Ice Hockey I developed very minor asthma.

    As soon as the weather changes from warm to cold, after leaving the gym I begin coughing like a mad man, gasping for air/a breath, it usually results in gagging, sometimes even puking.

    Anyone else experience this? Its amazing how its like clockwork in september every year......Gotta go get an inhaler and maybe some syrup prescribed.

    I have a client that suffers from that. Though it wasn't too severe or weather related.

    I never had asthma when I lived in southern cali where the weather was mid 70's year round, but since I moved to SF I have a tough time breathing when the weather gets colder right around this time of year. Fucking sucks. If you take an inhaler your heart rate blasts up way high.

    Edit: I'm a big giant idiot...for some reason I thought you meant due to exercising, you developed asthma.

    I actually had asthma when I was working out today. One set and i'm breathing hard for like 10 fucking minutes. It was a looong workout.

    I have asthma too and it hits me really bad this time of year. My allergies to ragweed don't help. When I'm out skiing in the Winter I always get an asthma attack the first couple of runs unless I take a few puffs from the inhaler. I suggest a prescription for advair shit works great at controlling it. I also use my inhaler prior to any cardio.

    My son has been diagnoses with cold-induced asthma. He's fine all Summer but as soon as he hits the ice when hockey starts (right now) he gets asthma attacks. With the inhaler he can control it.

    yea it could be allergies. By some OTC zantac and try it. Also, hockey rinks are just a hotbed for sickness. I would always get some kind of virus/strep/bad cold after a tournament.

    I was diagnosed with exercise-induced athsma after I had pneumonia. I was recovering from the pneumonia and I went for a run. After I started breathing heavily, I started coughing and couldn't stop. I went to the hospital and they gave me a puffer for when I exercise. So I just use the puffer befoer I exercise. I don't need it at any other time really, except in summer when the smog gets really bad.

    The doctors didn't mention this but personally, I think weight plays a big factor for me, because the more weight I lose, the less intense the athsma is.

    I feel you Patty.

    I had asthma as a child and it went away for nearly a decade. The only time it ever bothered me was outside in the cold. My asthma came back last fall when it started getting cold out. I noticed last summer my asthma was pretty well controlled and I didn't have much trouble. Once fall hit again I could feel it getting worse.

    The worst is when you're outside walking and you're walking INTO a headwind and it just feels like the wind is pouring down your throat/nose and completely choking you.

    I didn't develop exercise induced asthma until recently either. I played sports for years and never needed my inhaler. Now, I use it just to lift some weights if I'm going to be doing squats or cleans.

    Best thing to do is have a doc check it out.

    I was put on Symbocort, a daily steroidal inhaler. It helps control symptoms and ventolin (rescue inhaler) is good for workouts or when you know you'll be walking around in blustering cold weather.
