How do you know if you have asthma?
GEHA | August 20, 2018
Not everyone exhibits the same asthma symptoms. One individual may even have different symptoms from one attack to the next.
The most common symptoms are:
- Coughing, especially at night
- Wheezing and shortness of breath
- Tightness, pain or pressure in the chest
- Feeling very tired or weak during exercise
- Trouble sleeping
If you think you may have asthma, speak with your primary care provider. Your care provider will review your personal and family medical history, your symptoms, and perform a physical examination, including a breathing test, to make a diagnosis. Your provider may also order additional tests including allergy and blood tests.
