I too have bad asthma. What I hate most about it the non stop coughing fits. What I find helps me when mine gets bad is really cold glass of water. It soothes the throat and slows down the breathing. Also maybe take a slow steady walk around the block for air. or simply sit outside for a couple minutes. Hope this helps

If it's worse at night, you can try a few things:

1. Get new pillows. about 1/3 of the weight of a pillow after 6 months is due to dead skin and dust mites.

2. Vacuum your mattress. My asthma is one reason why I still have a waterbed. I don't have to worry about a build up of dead skin and dust mites.

3. Elevate your upper body by either elevating the head portion of the mattress on wedges of wood, or getting some extra new pillows so that you prop yourself up in a reclined instead of flat position to sleep.

4. Have a fan on to circulate the air in your room.

5. Look for an allergy free mattress cover for your bed.

You're in California correct? I wonder if it's possible that winds could be blowing smoke/debris into the air over other parts of cali? If so, there's not much you can do about it other then see if your doctor can help.

I doubt it would be the fires we're having in Southern California. She is closer to Northern California than LA. I would imagine some of our winds could make it up there but it would take a while, plus most of the pollutants would be highly dissapated by that time.

Jacky is in the Central Valley, so the smoke may be coming up her way from the LA Basin.

Jacky, my take on this is that we are having such warm temperatures that things are blooming out of season. I am miserable, too and I take allergy medicines.

I'm sorry you're having trouble with your asthma. I have been too. Thursday night I had a bad attack and had to go have a breathing treatment. We get smoke from California here in Utah and it makes our air quality bad too. They talk about it on the news every time California has a big fire. It really affects our air quality in a big way. They even go so far as to tell anyone who has asthma, children or elderly, not to go outside. Anyway.... I've felt like crap ever since. But yes, please call your doc and let him/her know what is going on.

I had figured the fires could have some affect. When there's fires in other states (if big enough) we'll see the haze from it all the way over here. So this happening inside one state's borders shouldn't be that hard to believe.
DH's asthma is extremely sensitive to smoke, it doesn't take much at all to bother him.

I hope you get to feeling better soon.

It is smoky here too. I am staying indoors so I don't have to breath the air.
