It's Very Odd.The number of stories here about people who *don't* currently have asthma outnumbers the number of stories about people who do!
I *do* have asthma, but it's very mild (I don't even own a reliever inhaler). Mine is exercise-induced asthma, and it gets stirred up by cold air. That said, if I warm out properly, I can be doing a series of full-out sprints without any wheezing noises. I think this is because I'm a lot fitter than I used to be. The saliva still builds up though.
