I just want to know if CPAP use is contraindicative if you have asthma.
I recently had asthma because of the change in climate and for some reason, I think my CPAP use is preventing me from getting better. The Pulmonologist already put me in nebulized corticosteroid use but I don't think it completely fixes my asthma since I can somehow feel heavy when breathing. Before, I only had to take salbutamol tablets and not these nebulizers and I feel better after a week. I don't want to use any of those nebulizers because I suspect that it's causing me anxiety attacks. I stopped using the CPAP for almost 3 days now and I have to say, my condition improved. I read an article that positive airway machines aids asthmatic patients but from what I experience, it's not really the case but I want to confirm if there are people out there who knows something or experienced this.
I really wanted to ask the sleep doctor right away but she's only available on June 04 which is so far away and I need to know now if I am doing the right thing by halting my CPAP treatment. I will have to resume my treatment as soon as my asthma is gone.
