The early signs of asthma

Leave a comment

In general, most asthma attack symptoms are not severe enough to stop you from going about your daily activities. But if you learn how to recognizing these signs, you can stop an asthma attack or prevent one from getting worse.

Early warning signs of an asthma attack include:

  • Frequent cough, day or night, but some got it more at night.
  • Reduced peak flow meter readings (PEF)
  • Losing your breath easily or shortness of breath
  • Wheezing and/or coughing
  • Feeling tired or weak
  • Feeling very tired or weak when exercising
  • Wheezing or coughing after exercise or exercise-induced asthma
  • Feeling tired, easily upset, grouchy, or moody (can be signs of not feeling well because of the strain coming)
  • Decreases or changes in lung function and/or as measured on a peak flow meter
  • Signs of a cold and/or allergies (sneezing, runny nose, cough, nasal congestion, sore throat, and headache)
  • Trouble sleeping with nighttime asthma
  • Take care, eat and sleep well, if you are tired you get more easily sick, that is my experience not so often told elsewhere.

The severity of an asthma attack can escalate rather rapidly, so it’s important to treat these symptoms immediately once you recognize them.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
