I am an almost 60 year old caucasion male who has been diagnosed with allergic asthma for 16 years. The asthma is seasonal, but gets bad with pollen season and other environment issues. I recently caught a full out case of the flu. Day seven, and I'm still quite asthmatic suffering difficulty breathing and coughing, but even those symptoms are subsiding.
For the past two nights, I have awakened, as I do everynight twice, to urinate. No problem. But when I get back into bed and lay down, I find myself suddenly breathless, though breathing heavily and I loose bladder control!
Is there some type of relatinship between these symptoms? I've never had OAB or UI in the past, now suddenly I do. Are there dietary issues at work, perhaps? I haven't been eating well the past week and I've run out of my daily vitamins.
