    Especially during winter. Does anyone know what that means? Ie. what are the housing conditions that give rise to that sensation?
  1.  
    Air quality ??

    COPD from long term poor air quality and/or smoking

    It's quite hard to get temperature and humidity just right. The Goldilocks zone so to speak. Too dry is just as bad as too damp.

    I'm young and it can't be any of that, I was more thinking it is something to do with humidity but I wondered if certain temps trigger it, it only happens in winter

    Maybe low RH. Have you got a RH meter, they are cheap enough.
  5.  
    Try a humidifier.

    Helps me when we have the heating running a little warmer and dryer and the asthma feels to be about to start knocking.

    Also lots of houseplants may help regulate.

    Have you experienced the same symptoms in different houses and locations?

    Are you a builder? I've had something similar for about twenty years :-)
