Have you ever experienced a whistling or scratching sound when you breathe? Wheezing is the most common symptom of asthma.
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects a person’s breathing. It is characterized by variable and recurrent symptoms, bronchospasm and reversible blockage in the airways. It’s a condition that affects both adults and children, often throughout the majority of their lives.
This blockage is usually caused by swelling in the walls of your airways and can lead to shortness of breath, chronic cough, tightness in the chest and difficulty sleeping.
Sometimes asthma attacks can be triggered by allergens such as pollen, dust mites, molds or animal hairs. Non-allergens such as pollutants, smoke or weather changes can also cause asthmatic attacks. Stress, overexertion, excessive laughing or crying can also trigger bouts of asthma.
While there is no cure for asthma, it is possible for sufferers to lead a normal life. This can be achieved by avoiding the things that trigger asthma, and maintaining a healthy diet and life pattern. Medication is available to prevent give quick relief and even immunize against severe asthma.
Diagnosis and treatment of asthma is different for each individual. What may have helped someone you know, may not work for you.
