Mickey P., AZ
Before I moved to Tucson, I lived in northern California for many years. I was near the ocean and the winters were wet with lots of rain, fog, mold, and mildew, but my respiratory system functioned fairly well. I do have asthma, but I generally have had no significant problems. Tucson is another story.
I really would like to move. I've thought about a moving back to California or moving up to Portland, OR. I lived there a while back and generally had no significant problems, except for those occasional smoky days in the winter.
There is a large group of pulmonologists here in Arizona. I have great respect for them, but I feel like I'm barking up the wrong tree. I'm wondering if anyone out there could give them a little more insight into this situation.
