@clumsylawyer:  What did your doctor say? Maybe your asthma medication needs to be changed?

I’m thinking this could be related to your asthma. I have it too and I have a limit, which is like my line that I can’t cross otherwise I’ve pushed myself too far and I end up shaky and dizzy. I work out pretty frequently and I still can’t seem to get past that line. I absolutely can’t run because of it, which sucks.

I have pretty bad asthma too.

I say tone it down a bit. The amount of exercise you’re doing for the severity of asthma you have will definitely wear out your lungs and make it hard for you to breathe/inevitably make you pass out. Maybe try walking less in a day.

Just make sure to keep your puffer(s) handy in case you ever need them.

Go see a doctor. And ask about seeing a cardiologist. Its possible it has nothing to do with your level of endurance or asthma, but other items. Its also possible it is your asthma, but better to know why.  You dont want to play games like that.

I had severe asthma as a child. I was one of the lucky ones that “outgrew” it, but my lung capacity is still horrible. I am not very athletic, but I don’t know if that’s why, or if I’d be like that anyway. 

Are you sure this is because of your asthma though? If you’re getting shaky it might be a blood sugar issue, especially since you’re working out for such a long time.
