Asthma is a condition in which individual is not able to breath. Unfortunately it’s extremely common. Millions of people worldwide have been diagnosed with asthma, and many of them are kids. If you, a family member or a friend or relatives has asthma, it’s important to know the signs of an asthma attack. Knowing what to look for can facilitate early treatment, reducing the chance of a serious attack.
Symptoms of an asthma attack include: Wheezing when breathing in, out, or both,   Frequent coughing, Faster breathing, Tightness in the chest and/or neck, A feeling of panic, A pale, sweaty face. When the symptoms of the asthma appear, it’s important for its sufferer to use rescue inhaler as soon as possible. Waiting it to go is not a good idea. Some times wheezing gets stopped and the sufferer thinks that it’s subsiding, but in reality the chest muscles have tightened up so much that there is not enough air movement to cause wheezing. If the asthma attack progresses to the severe point, immediate medical care is imperative. Sometimes an asthma attack may progress, even with use of a rescue inhaler. In addition to the so-called “silent chest” described above, here are some other signs that medical treatment should be sought: A blue or gray tinge to the lips and skin underneath the fingernails, serious difficulty speaking, or straining the chest muscles to breathe. It is misconception that asthma attack comes suddenly; it means you wouldn’t be able to see symptoms before it comes. It’s brilliant if asthma sufferers keep inhalers all the time in their pocket. Paying attention to these early warning signs can help prevent an attack before it starts. These signs include: Coughing at night, Shortness of breath, Feelings of tiredness or irritability, Allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose and congestion, Trouble sleeping. Another thing that those with asthma often ignore is the presence of environmental factors that bring on symptoms. These include increased pollen or pollution, windy conditions, high temperatures accompanied by high humidity, and low temperatures accompanied by low humidity. Staying indoors in the presence of these conditions can go a long way toward preventing an asthma attack. Asthma has the potential to seriously decrease one’s quality of life. But by paying attention to early signs of an attack and following their doctors’ orders, asthma sufferers can make sure that attacks are mild and infrequent. When asthma is kept under control, it doesn’t have to have a profound effect on one’s life.
