What Is Asthma?
If you have a chronic problem when it comes to breathing, you likely have asthma. This chronic respiratory condition can have mild to severe symptoms. Much of the severity depends on how the airways in your body react to the triggering allergens.
How can you avoid developing asthma?
Unfortunately, medical science doesn’t know what causes this respiratory condition. Statistically, you are more likely to have it if both your parents did, indicating there is a genetic factor to it. You are also more likely to develop it if you’ve had a severe early childhood respiratory infection.
How do I know I am having an asthma attack?
When you suffer from an attack, you will see some very noticeable symptoms and breathing problems. Asthma symptoms can include:
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
Symptoms tend to be worse in the morning and evening.
While there is no cure for asthma, many people efficiently manage it with inhalers and other medications.
