I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced the same symptoms. I have been here two months. Before, I was in Riyadh. Dubai is extremely hot but less dust. Riyadh has more dust storms. However, I have had a sore throat everyday along with asthma like never before. When I speak or eat, I start coughing. If I go to the doctor, he will tell me it is due to the air conditioning and the hot weather. I turn off the air conditioner at night but I can't seem to get well. I have lived in the Arctic and other cold places and other hot places, but I don't know why I am sick here. Does anyone have a clue or suggestions? Will it go away?
