Asthma Symptoms

Asthma is a serious medical condition that can cause a person’s airways to block up and therefore make it difficult to breathe. If you have asthma it is important to recognize the many asthma symptoms so that you know when you should use asthma medication to treat the problems. It is especially important to recognize asthma symptoms because if the asthma symptoms are not treated soon enough they could get into a greater level of progress that it will be difficult to control them.

 

First, there are warning signs of what can become asthma symptoms. Various signs of asthma symptoms include sneezing, coughing, a runny nose, headache and throat itching. A person can also become fatigued or have a hard time sleeping at night when asthma symptoms may become present. Intolerance for physical activity is another warning sign of asthma symptoms. These signs should be watched for, as they can be precursors to an asthma attack. However, the asthma attacks can be minor in these cases. There are other asthma symptoms to watch for that can result in more serious attacks.

Serious asthma attacks can especially make it difficult for a person to breathe. This is why it is important to know the asthma symptoms for one of these more serious attacks, as treating it earlier can keep it from getting worse than it should be. Severe coughing and wheezing that goes beyond what is found in minor asthma symptoms can be suggestions of a serious asthma attack.

Difficulty with walking or talking is another of the asthma symptoms of a more serious attack. Difficult with concentration on activities is another sign of severe asthma.

A physical way to find severe asthma symptoms is by checking the neck area and areas of the body below the ribs. If these areas are moving inward when breathing then a serious asthma attack could be in progress. A gray or blue kind of tint is another sign.

If you know how to measure your peak flow numbers then it can help you with finding out if you are suffering from one of the more severe kinds of asthma symptoms. If the numbers for you are below half of your personal best then you are suffering from significant asthma symptoms.

If you are ever suffering from any of more severe kinds of asthma symptoms it is best to get medical help immediately. Of course, the best way to treat these problems is to use the right methods of prevention so that asthma symptoms do not appear in the future. Be sure to check and see what can trigger your asthma, including things that you may be allergic to. By avoiding the triggers you can keep the asthma symptoms from appearing and therefore prevent asthma attacks in the future, or at least to reduce the frequency of asthma attacks that you may have.
