What is Asthma? Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment.

Asthma can be minor or it can interfere with daily activities. In some cases, it may lead to a life-threatening attack.
Asthma may cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, cough and wheezing. The symptoms may sometimes flare up.
Asthma can usually be managed with rescue inhalers to treat symptoms (salbutamol) and controller inhalers that prevent symptoms (steroids). Severe cases may require longer-acting inhalers that keep the airways open (formoterol, salmeterol, tiotropium), as well as inhalant steroids.

Asthma: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Triggers, Diagnose and Prevention

Asthma is a lung condition that can make your airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, which causes breathing difficulties.

1. Track your symptoms:

-Shortness of breath or whistling sounds when you exhale (wheezing).
-Disturbed sleep caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing.
-Chest tightness or pain.
-Quick-relief (rescue) inhaler use — record when you need to use your quick-relief inhaler, such as albuterol (Proventil HFA, Ventolin HFA), and write down how many puffs you take.
-Disruptions to work, school, exercise or other day-to-day activities caused by asthma symptoms.
-Asthma symptoms during exercise.
-Changes in color of phlegm you cough up.
-Hay fever symptoms such as sneezing and runny nose.
-Anything that seems to trigger asthma flare-ups.

2. Record how well your lungs are working: Peak Flow, Spirometry.

3. Adjust treatment according to your asthma action plan

If you come into contact with one of your asthma triggers, it can make your symptoms worse and even bring on an asthma attack.
