What Are The Symptoms Of Asthma, And How Can I Aid In Getting Rid Of It?

Aug 15, 2008
According to the global burden of asthma report. Around 300 million people worldwide have asthma. As stated by the national heart long and blood Institute "asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. The airways are the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, inside walls of your airways are inflamed or swallow. The inclination makes the airways very sensitive, and they tend to react strongly to things that you are allergic to or you find irritating."

Asthma cannot be cured, but it can be controlled so that people can live active lives. A few symptoms that are included in people that have asthma are coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, or rapid breathing. Asthma can be treated by several things such as acupuncture, soft tissue therapy, herbal remedies, or medications such as Singulair, Xolair or Benadryl. People with severe allergies can have asthmatic symptoms as well such as shortness or breath, chest tightness or rapid breathing.

A few years back I was living in New York, and for about a week I was having a hard time breathing but being the young stupid kid I was, I just figured it would go away eventually. But instead I ended up in the hospital because I passed out from my throat closing up. Asthma nor allertgies are something to take lightly. It doesnt matter if you have mild or heavy symptoms, you need to go to the doctors and be checked out to see what they can do for you. Again asthma cant be cured but Doctors can find a way to help you live life normally and not have problems with the uncomfortable symptoms that asthma or allergies can bring into your life!
