Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Whatever you are experiencing is just exertion.It s unlikely to be asthma.I advise you to maintain adequate hydration while in hot weather and keep washing your face with water regularly.This can reduce stress on you .

Take care.

Hi welcome to HCM.
In case of asthma it is not necessary to exert your self to feel breathlessness. It occurs even at rest and is triggered by house dust or pollens in the air. If you have breathlessness only after coming home then it is unlikely to be asthma. You need to check your hemoglobin level in the blood or any heart problem. Best is to consult a physician to get a complete examination done to ascertain the cause of breathlessness.

can you help me? Hello I am a 23year old female. I am 5 2 and obese. I think I weigh 240 but it does not hinder me. I have asthma and depression. I recently was sick.first I had a very bad cold which I attributed to the change of weather. I was better for a day and then my asthma started up. I couldn t breathe and was wheezing. I was coughing so bad and so much I had stomach pains. Then last week my anal area started to hurt. I noticed it when I used the bathroom but I ignored it,figuring it would go away. It didn t. The pain got so severe that I at guest seemed to couldn t sit,walk,lay down e.t.c... it just hurt. I noticed that my left buttock was swollen. I can t use the bathroom because I can t sit. this is embarrassing for me,but I can t control my bladder because I can t clench my buttocks together. There is no blood in my stool. I ve been sitting in hot baths which at first seemed to soothe me but now it s making it worse. three days ago I started taking Aleve to help with the pain. It helped at first. the pain had lessened and the swelling went down. But I noticed on my left buttock ,starting near my anal entrance there is a large swelling. I m not sure what to call it, but it is huge and I fear that it it s some type of huge blister. It Burns. I can t get to a hospital. I can t move. Please it s there anything you can tell me about this? I went through a 24 pill bottle of Aleve within three days, I can t sleep, eat e.t.c..I am scared.

Hi I am currently on Breo for asthma . I seem to get more short of breath even standing talking let alone walking. Could there be something more serious going on. Recent change in the weather (cold and rainy) really bothered me after walking a short distance uphill to work. Should I be worried? I am overweight but this feels really different than in the past

I live in Bangalore, recently I went to Chennai were I was severely affected and on 2nd June I visited a doctor who gave me medicine and I had to return from the station on 3rd june, since I had dizziness, severe cough but not temp. I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.
