Exercise Challenges for Those Suffering from Asthma, Allergies, and EIB
Do you find yourself wheezing, coughing, or dealing with a tight chest when you engage in mild exercise? Are you constantly battling shortness of breath or chest pain, as much as five to 20 minutes following a light jog? If so, you may be experiencing the effects of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, or EIB.
As many as 300 million people throughout the world deal with the symptoms of EIB and asthma—a situation made worse through strenuous exercise. If you think you may be suffering from EIB, there are a few indicatory triggers to keep an eye out for:
- Sensitivity to dry air and low temperatures.
- Frequent reactions to air pollutants, high pollen levels, and viral respiratory infections.
- Exercise challenges (i.e. shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, etc.)
