Most of the times, a disease which is spotted right from the beginning of its evolutions has more chances of being treated much more rapidly and effectively than one which was discovered only when it got worse. This is why, it is highly important to visit a doctor whenever you feel that there is something wrong going on inside your body.
Also, it is very useful to know what the symptoms characteristic for certain illnesses or conditions are. If you have had persons in your family who suffered from asthma, than you should prepare to recognize any of this condition’s symptoms, so that you discover its presence in the incipient form. Also, because asthma is one of the most spread ailments from all over the world, even if your family does not have a history with this disease, knowing exactly what it is about can help you prevent it or discover it from its beginning.
Even though not all persons have the same asthma symptoms, the most common symptoms for this ailment are excessive coughing, which becomes more acute during the night, wheezing, pain in the chest or a kind of pressure inside the chest and difficulties in breathing. These symptoms are usually more acute during the asthma attacks. After the attacks are over there may be periods in which the symptoms are no longer felt. Yet, even in these relatively calm periods you may experience trouble in breathing or uneven function of your lungs, so you will always have to keep your medicine at hand.
Feelings of tiredness, trouble in sleeping, feeling grouchy or moody, serious coughing especially at night and after doing physical exercises and symptoms which can be easily associated with allergies are also highly frequent in the manifestation of asthma. These symptoms usually appear in the first stages of the ailment, so if you have two or more of these symptoms, it is advisable that you go to a doctor. Even though these symptoms may point out to an allergy or to another disease, it is always good to have some tests done and see if asthma is what you are suffering of or there is another ailment which is troubling your health.
