Yes, when my Asthma hits, I feel very tired. It is very prominent when I participate in any exhausting activities. It causes me to just pass out once I get home and sleep in depth.
Well, if I have an asthma attack or have an episode like last weekend where I could not catch my breath, for som reason the next day I am a lot more fatigued.
yes it happens after I've had an episode . I get an overcoming fatigue . it really throws off my day/week , makes it so hard to get anything done or get motivated about anything.
@rodrig_o94 yup! totally with you on that , it really does throw you off and it sometimes can be hard to "plan ahead" for that very reason. it's constant worrying whether something or nothing may trigger an episode... i know recently was planning a weekend getaway that i was so excited for but day before leaving had an episode and there went those plans!!
It happens when i get an asthma attack. I cant lower my co2 levels and i feel dizzy and tired.
A few weeks ago I had a flare while playing the guitar. I will admit it took me almost a week to really feel my energy back.
How are you today? Have you seen this older discussion?
Do you ever experience fatigue or exhaustion with your asthma? Is it an occasional feeling for your such as after an attack, or do you experience it constantly? How do you manage it?

I usually try to watch what I eat. My asthma caused by food allergies and seasonal allergies. I take vitamin c and vitamin d daily. I increase vitamin c and rest when I feel overwhelmed. I used to try take pain relievers to get me through. And drink water to flush system.
@Courtney_J I just seen it
this is a good question that I never really thought about. I've had asthma pretty much all my life and so fatigue has just always been a part of it. Along with the asthma I have allergies and never realized how much they can impact my energy also until I took my youngest once for a doctors appt and the doctor mentioned his allergies was making him tired. As I get older the fatigue seems to get worse.
