Brief Answer:
steroids inhalers for three months

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome in HCM

I can understand your concern

As you explain the history this might be a condition that your airways are more sensible due to fresh air or due to over distention of the airways (like in strong laughing ).

Do not worry. For such condition we recommend to do the Spirometry test and if it is positive than inhalers with steroids are reccommended (like Clenil twice) or nebulizer with steroids for 2-3 months.

You can discuss with your treating doctor for the above and probably he will consider the above treatment.

You can try Flixotide inhaler twice for three months.

Try it and you will feel better soon.

Regards and feel free to ask me again
