DIAGNOSIS: ASTHMA

What are the Asthma Signs and

Symptoms?

Asthma signs and symptoms include tightness and constriction of the chest, wheezing, loss of breathe and inability to take in a full breath, gasping, inability to speak, a chronic cough. You might feel anxious and have a hard time concentrating. You wont' be able to sleep well, or you'll have rapid breathing. Sighing can be a symptom. Fatigue or an inability to properly exercise might also be symptoms. The most dangerous thing is, sometimes asthma can be there without a person exhibiting all of those symptoms. People figure that wheezing and asthma are joined. Some people who experience asthma don’t have wheezing occur to them. Realize that other sicknesses can mimic the same symptoms you might get if you had asthma. Dysfunction of the vocal cords, heart failure and even 'acute bronchitis' might be things which will give the same symptoms, as can emphysema or chronic bronchitis. Some things which can exacerbate asthma signs and symptoms could be the intake of cold air, infections, second-hand or first-hand smoke, dust, mediations or acid reflux. A cold can even seem to give you similar symptoms. There are also different levels of asthma conditions. You might just have very mild symptoms, or you might end up in the emergency room because you can't breathe. There, they'll give you intravenous corticosteroids or other medications. They might put you on an oxygen tank. They generally begin with dyspnea (a shortness of breath). This is the way that the distress starts. Some, however, don't even notice that they're having a shortness of breath. This can be dangerous when this occurs. When this happens, the patient is usually female, older and they've been dealing with the problem for many years. A cough that doesn’t produce anything is sometimes a way that you know you're experiencing an asthma attack. Chest pain can be quite severe, and is sometimes the way people know. It's a good early-indicator of asthma. About three fourths of those who get asthma symptoms have chest pain that's pretty severe. The amount of pain you experience isn't related to the severity of the attack, though. As usual, whenever people have pains in the chest area they think of 'heart attack'. A heart attack feels like someone is sitting on your chest, some people say. However, some heart attacks offer much milder symptoms. Your neck muscles might grow very tight. When you can't breath right, or you have rapid breathing, or your heart starts to beat fast those are sometimes ways of telling. You might break out in a sweat. Now you know the asthma signs and symptoms. If you ever see someone that's exhibiting them, ask if you might help.
