    I did not have Asthma as child but got it later in life at thirty years of age. I had what I thought was just a chest cold 3 days prior to going to the ER. I was mowing my yard on a riding mower and I started have problems breathing. Went to the ER and they said I have Asthma. Gave me a breathing treatment and sent me home. No inhaler was prescribed so I used Primateen mist for about a month. I then seen my regular Doctor and he put me on a inhaler. I was referred to a Asthma Specialist. I had worked in the fire service and EMS many years. I am now taking Advair 500/50 dry inhaler and Pro Air Click which in my opinion works better than the regular Pro Air inhaler. I am now 60 yrs old do it has been a 30 year battle. I have moderate Asthma.
