I dont have this problem currently, but I was researching different aspects of MS and it brought up a question. I read that MS can affect your muscles for breathing, which makes sense. But if you have a chronic condition such as asthma, how would you be able to tell where the difficulty is coming from, asthma or MS?

@laurianne25 , this is where you have to work with your medical team.

The fact that you are already considering that MS does not cause everything will help.

I have asthma on occasion and I can tell the difference – it’s true that not everything is attributable to ms – it’s just experience in knowing your own body and compromised breathing and say more muscular crushing of an ms ‘hug’ I guess over time (22 yrs ms and asthma much longer).

It’s in similarity to having T1 Diabetes and MS, thinking that issuses and problems I was having were a result of low Glucose levels, which I do experience more so than high levels, whereas infact a lot of what I was experiencing was most likely MS related.
