I have 18 years history of asthma and I started bodybuilding 2 years ago. 4 months ago, I had an attack that was initially mild but progressively worsened despite treatment. I experienced just wheezing and chest tightness. I had to be nebulized and placed on ceftriaxone for 2 days. Wheezing cleared on treatment but chest tightness remained until after two weeks post treatment.
I have a new episode now but no wheezing this time, only chest tightness and it has lasted a month now despite regular use of my inhalers.
I have stopped training in the gym for over a week now.
1. What condition is this and what should I do??
2. Could bodybuilding be a cause?? Should I stop bodybuilding totally??
