What causes Asthma?
The exact causes of Asthma are still unknown. The causes could be genetic or infections during early childhood.
While the exact cause of asthma is unknown, we do know quite a bit about the body’s allergic response. When someone with an allergic sensitivity breathes in certain allergens, the airways become inflamed, and the inflammation causes swelling and tightening of the muscles surrounding the airways. The problem is often made worse by the body’s increased production of mucus in response. Together, these reactions make it difficult to get enough air into the lungs.
What are the symptoms of Asthma?
Asthma attack signs and symptoms include:
Severe shortness of breath,
Pain or tightness in the chest
Coughing or wheezing
Symptoms that fail to respond to use of a quick-acting (rescue) inhaler
If your asthma flares up you should see a medical professional. If the symptoms are severe you should go to your local hospital emergency room or call 911. If the symptoms are milder, the board-certified medical team at Prognify can help.
