Asthma Symptoms

April 02, 2015

When we think of asthma we usually picture wheezing and inhalers. That can be an accurate image in some cases but early symptoms can be much less severe. It's important to recognize and treat  milder symptoms of asthma before they develop into severe asthma attacks! Wheezing or shortness of breath during any of the following activities may be a danger sign: Exercise, sleeping, laughing, crying, being in cold air, being around airborne toxins like cigarette smoke and exposure to allergens. Some symptoms can be tougher to spot. In some kids it can be as simple as a cough. A detailed exam by a doctor is the best way to be sure if a problem exists. Sometimes the condition can be diagnosed by something as simple as an airflow test. The main thing is to find out if the condition is present so the right steps can be taken to avoid a potentially life threatening situation.
