It actually wasn't until I 2003 that I had started seeing my current doctor and began taking the more current medications they have available. Having the inhaler and nebulizer around is good, but proactive treatment before the attacks begin to kick in is just a lot more effective especially if you want to start being more active. Definitely start looking into that.

Also, as I said before, moderation in training is the best route to follow. It will be hard enough as it is to begin training. You don't want to completely wreck your body when you completely start, or any aspirations you may have in training any sorts of MA will begin to seem like a "pipe dream."

Good luck.

I dont know what would be wrong with having asthma as a fighter but it would suck having a asthma attack in the ring or having problems because your porbably going to be tired or get winded one of these days.

I'm 16 i have asthma which is also in my mothers side of the family, i used to suffer from it a lot when i was younger but i find i haven't used any of my medication in years, but i always make regular visits to the gym which cant be bad. so i think eventually you'll grow out of it, exercise will probably help this process.

ya i have asthma too....really bad asthma....i need a bunch of puffers and advair to control it...but when i'm doing sports i just ignore it....a lot of times its really mental as soon as you start to think you're getting it...you panic and it makes i work...just relax bacause you're technically still getting enough oxygen into your system....i always ignore it...i used to race kayaks at the national level and just ignored my asthma during a race ans push past it....eventually you don't even notice it
