I see the monitor had responded to you with recommendations. I too would asked have you tried going to a mjaor medical provider like Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic. Mayo Clinic has pulmanary specialist and testing that is the latest diagnosis testing and treatments.

I just had a full pulmanary test done that showed some troubling areas but nothing that would have cause my asthma episode I experienced during a Sprint Triathlon swim. It seems to me if something goes wrong I do something or my body does something and cannot get enough air in. Then I start coughing up phlem.

Mayo and I are experimenting on inhalers to try using before race and I am also working with a speech MD. I know speech sounds suspicious but they are specialist in the throat area and also had another test.

My suggestion is see if you can go to a Mayo that is closest to you. I say that because I know Mayo is outstaing in their diagnosis and treatment of asthma conditions.

@jc76 I am definitely going to try to get into Mayo. Your story is both inspiring and scary. I am sorry you go through that. But I am happy that you are even able to attempt a triathlon. That can never happen for me. I hope you get to continue your athletics unencumbered by breathing problems. Best wishes.
