The Possible Causes for My Asthma

0 votes
I think I have asthma due to exercise. I experience a bad reaction when I go for running in winter. I think I suffer badly than others. I thrive to breathe and feel a burning sensation in my throat. Later on, I suffer from wheezing and will have a tight chest for more than two to three hours. I guess my asthma is due to hereditary reasons; many of my family members are suffering from asthma. Eczema is a common thing in my family and my asthma may be related to it. I had reported with acute bronchitis in my infant stage which could be the reason behind my asthma.

Yes, you might have inherited your asthma from your parents/family. Also, Eczema is a general class of allergic hypersensitivity that is also a risk factor for developing asthma. Weather changes have also been known to stimulate asthma attacks. Cold air can lead to airway congestion.

Asthma and Eczema are both results of allergic reactions. Allergic reactions are induced by several stimulants. It varies from one individual to another.
One can have one or more stimulants. Those identified as for your case is Exercise, should be avoided as much as possible and look out for other stimulants as well.
The allergic reaction involved in asthma is hereditary. In early stages of life especially less than 6 years, the similar symptomatic presentationcannot be diagnosed as Asthma as yet. It may be the explanation of your diagnoses that you still have doubt in.
You may need to see a Physician for proper review.
