I recently got diagnosed with having asthma. I was wondering if anybody else has this and if it has messed with your heart from medications at all.
It is nice knowing that I am not crazy when I continue to say I am sob but it took having a big spell for a regular dr to tell me that he assumes I have had it for a while. Though, the inhaler that he gave me one of the side effects says it can raise your h.r. I was wondering if this has happened to anybody? Thanks!

Hi Tammy

I suffer from asthma usually viral. The ventolin makes my heart feel weak. The same thing happened to me I had had asthma for a while. Get your doc to do an asthma plan for you. Hope you go well sincere wishes

I was diagnosed with asthma about 5 months ago. My doctor started me on Advair at first, and it really affected my heart rate. Then he switched me to Flovent, and I have no troubles since as far as the asthma medications are concerned.

Any question, please feel free to message me.


Cardiac Asthma

Before I had my ICD implanted three weeks ago, I had Cardiac Asthma. I haven't been bothered with it since the implant. Ask your doctor about Cardiac Asthma. I had to do a lot of research before I found this diagnosis, but when I asked my doctor he was aware.

Good luck

btw; I treated my asthma with natural herbs. It worked great and I didn't have the side effects. Check with a holistic doctor.

Might not be true asthma as poor heart function often causes fluid build up in the lungs and simulates a "fake asthma". Cheers Peter

My child has Asthma

Hi Tammy,

My son has Asthma diagnosed when he was 4 years old he is now 17 , which we don't have many attacks as we used to . We have taken the Advair, and we would do breathing treatments, soI understand . However my dad has a PM and was also diagnosed with COPD. He takes breathing treatments and also takes Advair. So far so good with treatment. Peter is a very smart man because lot of the times dads breathing was not the copd it was the CHF. We have gotten a new DR Who now is questioning if dad really has copd. My sons heart rate would go up after taking a breathing treatment, but i have not heard dad say his would. Dad takes about 3 to 4 breathing treatments a day and Puffs on his Advair twice a day, Advair is a steriod which helpson building up lungs. Take care , hope everything goes good for you! God Bless! Shelley

A pacemaker completely solved my problem. In fact, it was implanted just 7 weeks ago and I ran a race today, placed first in my age group.
