im the same, just finished my course of ABs and Pred after developing pleurisy along with it all, so just have my blue inhaler now.
Keep the air cool but not cold, plenty of fresh air circulating, reduce the amount of scented sprays, drink plenty, avoid dairy and especially chocolate.
If you have pets, make sure you hoover plenty, and also hoover around your bed/dust the headboard i'd also advise changing your bedding and sticking your pillow in the freezer for a couple of hours to reduce the dust mites
Reactive asthma when you have a coughy virus is a PITA!
it hurts to breath basically... you cant do more than take shallow breaths because expanding your lungs hurt.
But i did also have issues with the muscles, especially around my sternum, that felt like someone was standing on my chest, almost like a crushing pain, together they made me feel like i was being slowly squeezed!
