You will have to go over the peak flow with your doctor to see .. it's possible you are sick with something and it's a reactive asthma going on .. but nobody but a doctor in-person can diagnose.

Here's a link to our Asthma online tracker:

You can email your dr the charts that you fill in, etc.

Your doctor will probably then go over with you an Asthma Action Plan so that you can know when to start using different meds, call the dr, etc.

Keep us posted~!
