Asthma cannot be self-diagnosed. If you suffer from the following symptoms on a regular basis you should see your doctor or physician:



shortness of breath

tightening of the chest

tiredness after activities that you would normally do easily

elevated breathing rate

The tests that your medical practitioner might run to establish whether or not you do have asthma include peak flow tests, lung function tests, and possibly allergy testing as well.
