Asthma symptoms can interrupt your life, during the day and at night. If you’ve missed work, given up gardening or stopped playing with the kids outside because of asthma, these are signs that your daytime symptoms aren’t as controlled as you think.
Common daytime symptoms include: Coughing; Wheezing; Tightness in your chest; Shortness of breath; Common nighttime symptoms; Trouble falling asleep because of coughing, wheezing, or tightness in your chest; Waking up in the night with a cough, wheeze, or tightness in your chest; Waking up too early in the morning with a cough or tightness in your chest; Waking up to use your rescue inhaler.
Even if you’re symptom-free during the day, your asthma symptoms may not be under control. Many symptoms happen between 2 AM and 6 AM . Your sleep may be interrupted by coughing, or you may wake up early in the morning with tightness in your chest.
What causes symptoms: When you have asthma, your airways (tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs) are inflamed or swollen. This inflammation makes the airways extra sensitive to things that are irritating. In response, the airways get narrower so less air flows to your lungs. The result: symptoms like wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), coughing, chest tightness and trouble breathing, especially at night and in the early morning.
An asthma attack is what happens when your symptoms become worse than usual. In an asthma attack (or episode), your airways become inflamed and narrower, and your body may produce too much mucus leading to coughing, wheezing, and trouble breathing.
People describe the feeling of an asthma attack as “sipping from a straw and having someone pinch the middle”. However you describe your asthma, the physical symptoms are uncomfortable and can be frightening. When you have an asthma attack, it feels like you can’t inhale enough air but in fact your lungs are having trouble exhaling. The wheezing or whistling sound that you hear is due to air moving through inflamed airways. Coughing is our body’s natural response to excess mucus.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your doctor to find out if you have asthma and if ASMANEX may be right for you.
