Asthma Q & A

What triggers asthma?

Asthma is a complex condition that affects your airways, which would otherwise seamlessly carry air in and out of your lungs. When you have asthma, certain triggers lead to swelling of your airways, which makes breathing increasingly difficult. You may have one or more asthma triggers, including:

  • Exercise
  • Allergies 
  • Pollution 
  • Dust mites
  • Chemical fumes
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Weather changes 

 

For some, periods of stress trigger asthma attacks, too. No matter what’s causing your asthma, it’s essential to understand the signs and symptoms and get started on a specially designed asthma management plan for your diagnosis. 

 

What happens during an asthma attack?

When exposed to your asthma triggers, your airways start swelling and becoming more narrow. You’re also likely to produce more mucus, which further blocks your airways and makes breathing a challenge. Asthma attacks can lead to:

  • Difficulty sleeping 
  • Chest tightness
  • Breathlessness
  • Wheezing 
  • Coughing 

 

You might have serious difficulty catching your breath during a severe asthma attack, which can be frightening and even life-threatening. If you have asthma, it’s important to schedule an appointment with YZ Healthcare; Javaria Jabeen D.O., for a comprehensive evaluation. Your provider can help you learn how to avoid asthma triggers and how to incorporate asthma treatments into your daily routine.
