1. Exercise-Induced Asthma
Exercise can make asthma symptoms worse. This is called exercise-induced asthma. Exercise can cause asthma symptoms in up to 80 percent of people with asthma. Treatment and monitoring can allow people with exercise-induced asthma to participate fully in the physical activity or exercise of their choice.
2. Nocturnal Asthma
Worsening of asthma at night is very common. Many factors may contribute to the increased symptoms, including:
- Exposure to allergens in the bedroom, particularly dust mites
- Delayed allergic response, which may occur three to eight hours after exposure
- Chronic sinus problems and/or post-nasal drip
- Gastroesophageal reflux
- Airway cooling from a drop in body temperature
- Decreased effect of medications during early morning hours
- Sleep apnea - brief, repetitive cessation of breathing during sleep caused by an upper airway obstruction
3.Occupational Asthma/Workplace Irritants
Workplace exposure to certain chemicals or dusts can induce asthma. Some chemicals act as sensitizers, inducing allergic reactions in the airways. Once the airways become sensitized to a specific chemical, even very small amounts can make asthma worse. Other substances, such as dusts, are airway irritants, causing symptoms in employees who have underlying asthma or who are exposed to high concentrations.
4.Steroid Resistant Asthma
Airway inflammation and immune activation plays an important role in chronic asthma. Current guidelines of asthma therapy have therefore focused on the use of anti-inflammatory therapy, particularly inhaled glucocorticoids (GCs). While the majority of patients respond to regular inhaled GC therapy, a subset of patients are poorly responsive even when treated with high doses of oral prednisone. This review will examine the mechanisms underlying steroid resistant (SR) asthma.
It shouldn't be because beta blockers can have the effect of bronchoconstriction which should be avoided in a person who is already prone to that problem.
AROUND 300 million people suffer from asthma around the world and 255,000 people die due to this disease every year.
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.
The answer is the airways will open slightly more - so very little will happen in reality. It has been known for some sportsmen to use inhalers to open their airways more during playing even though they dont have asthma
i have had asthma my whole life i used to get really dizzy after having my inhaler , i went to see my gp and he switched my medication now i dont have them that often than before :)
It doesnt have the energy to shake lol
kidding ask a vet
Both asthma and ulcerative are examples of inflammatory diseases (there are many more).
Clinical studies have shown that if you have one inflammatory disease there is a higher chance you might develop another - so to take this example, someone with asthma is slightly more likely to develop colitis (however, it doesn't mean that they definately will though).
Scientists think this link occurs is because in inflammatory diseases the immune system goes into overdrive for the wrong reasons (in asthma it might be an abnormal allergic response to pollen or dust, in colitis an abnormal response to food types). Unfortunately, it's not completely understood.
I live with someone who suffers from both and the best advice I can give is to identify the triggers (if you haven't already) and stay away from them e.g. dust/high fat diet etc. Best of luck.
They are given puffer to get extra oxygen in their lung.There is no cure for asthma, but you can treat it and manage your symptoms. With proper asthma treatment, you should be almost symptom-free and enjoy an active life.Asthma is a long-term disease -- you have it all the time, even when you don't feel the symptoms. To stay healthy and safe, follow your asthma treatment every day, even on days when you feel fine. You should avoid cold air, quit smoking (even 2nd hand smoke).
i have no idea wat u talkin bout
Yes, it can be passed down through the character sequences in the DNA, but no, it can not be spread from person-to-person.
If you mean can you get asthma from someone else who has it the answer is no. Asthma is an allergic reaction, not actually a disease, and therefore cannot be given to other people. Trust me I have it.
If possible, avoid whatever it is that triggers you asthma.
Asthma effects you when you play sports because the Bronchi is very sensitive and can cause irritating in the lungs, this causes loss of breath and maybe vomiting which will effect how long you can last in sports before your too out of breath.
Impaired gas exchange r/t respiratory secretions AEB fine crackles on auscultation, frequent productive cough, etc.
Medical management of asthma makes use of bronchodilators, whether oral or inhaled. Surgical management occurs in extreme cases (e.g. life threatening) and makes use of a procedure called the tracheotomy, to do so.
1. Yes, Shortness of breath is a common symptom of asthma, but in some cases, allergies can cause asthma-like symptoms. Exercise-induced asthma causes shortness of breath.
2. Allergies can trigger asthma symptoms, especially during physical activity.
3. Asthma is actually an allergic reaction when your lungs inflame and swell making it hard to breath.
4. Allergens can make our airways red, swollen, and filled with sticky mucus. So Allergies cause shortness of breath.
5. If you're unsure what are causes of shortness breath, consult with an allergist for your better cure.
Some side affects that i personaly have noticed was the overwelming feeling of shakiness. When i take my usual two puffs my hands shake and i feel realy jittery, but it only last for a short time.
I was having very hard time breathing and catching my breath. I had a severe case of bronchitis a few months before these breathing symptoms started. I used an inhaler on a daily basis and stopped running and other outdoor activities. I finally went to an allergy specialist and have been doing much better. I receive the drops under my tongue instead of a shot. It has already relieved most symptoms. It does not work overnite, but if you follow the doctor's orders and take your drops as directed, within two to three years you should feel much better.
One of the things that scared me was at nite, when I just could NOT catch my breath. I had to learn to relax since being anxious only adds to the problem.
More input from FAQ Farmers:
Yes you should. For both asthma and allergies, a doctor in general practice may not recognize allergies. Some doctors do recognize and treat allergies while others do not. An allergist (sometimes listed as "Allergies and Immunology") specializes in this particular area and are up-to-date (we hope! As in some countries, allergists don't even know what anaphylaxis is.) on treatments. As with any doctor, it is good to get recommendations from your doctor, friends, or professional organizations. If you are uncomfortable with one allergist, try another. For children, there are allergists who specialize in pediatric allergies or advertise that they treat children. Though any allergist can treat adults or children, it sometimes helps to have one who definitely *likes* children and respects the differences between adults and children.
ASTHMA: Pediatricians seem reluctant to use the term asthma. This bugs my allergist (and me), because he feels it precludes proper treatment sometimes. If you see any asthma symptoms and are poo-pooed by the pediatrician, see an allergist! This seems most often the case with an allergic kid who coughs every morning. I've heard MANY stories of pediatricians who, at most, tell parents to use an antihistamine (worse, cold medicine; worst, don't worry). Then the child ends up in acute distress in the hospital!
Allergists are most up to date on asthma treatment, which really matters. Allergists can often pinpoint particular allergens to avoid, from testing or only history! Allergists will tell you which environmental changes to make.
i completely agree with that entire answer and an asthma allergy doctor i recommend is Lisa Barociano (i don't really know how to spell the last name) She is a great doctor and is located in east hanover
Yet another answer!
You should definetly see an allerrgist or a doctor. When I was twelve my doctor gave my cough syrup and a week later I was rushed to hospital after running a mile!
The best way to find a reliable doctor to help you with your child's asthma is by going to YourCity.MD. There are patient testimonials, doctor ratings, and much more which make it easy to find the right doctor for you and your child. I really suggest it!
Just because you don't have every symptom associated with asthma doesnt mean you couldn't have it. I have had asthma for 24 years and never have I had the "asthma cough" that many people get. If you think you may have developed the disease by all means go to the doctor. they can proscribe a medicine that is right for you but don't take singular i have been taking it for 13 years and there has been a resent study that its been causing depression and a few people have comited suicide i recently stopped taking it but i never had any sideffects. i hope this helped
The causes of asthma aren't clear. But we do know that certain factors may increase the likelihood of developing asthma, or of it becoming persistent.
Allergic or extrinsic asthma is the most common type of asthma and results from breathing in certain allergens and irritants that cause an allergic reaction and asthma attack. Allergic asthma can affect anyone at any age, but children are more likely to suffer from this inflammatory condition. Researchers believe that both hereditary and environmental factors are responsible for allergic asthma.
In people with allergic asthma, the over-sensitive airway passages to the lungs become inflamed and the surrounding muscles constrict (tighten) when an allergen or irritant is inhaled. This in turn triggers asthma symptoms.
Allergic asthma is caused by inhaling specific allergens and irritants that set off an allergic reaction and asthma symptoms. In people without asthma, these allergens and irritants are often harmless and cause no response; however, in people with allergic asthma, their hyper-sensitive immune systems think that they are harmful substances.
Asthma is often caused by various allergens or irritants in the lungs which leads to inflammation of the lungs. Various factors can exacerbate the lungs, making them more vulnerable to asthma. Other lifestyle choices can also increase ones likelihood for asthma, and increase the severity of asthma.
Inflammation of the airway is the body's reaction to something it considers harmful as an attempt to keep the bad stuff out, unfortunately sometimes to the detriment of the body itself. It can even be caused by stomach acid ( acid reflux ) rising up and irritating the oesophagus.
Common Allergens or Irritants
Allergens that can trigger asthma attacks:
Irritants that can trigger asthma attacks:
Likelihood of developing asthma
You're more likely to develop asthma if:
Other lifestyle choices or factors that can make one vulnerable to Asthma:
To find your individual cause you should see an allergist. Most allergists are also asthma specialists, and will try different things until a desirable result is found.
allergies, a LEETLE piece of pollen, grass, dirt, etc. Also, asthma can be caused by not breathing right.
I had a cough for 6 months with no other symptoms every year around Aug thru Nov. Now that I am working on my allergies that time period is not as bad as before.
Allergy tests are not painful and very very useful.
It is not necessary that coughing is because of asthma only. There are other symptoms like wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath which can confirm that you have asthma. It is better to consult your doctor for the same.
3 Ways To Control Your Asthma Without Using Your Inhaler
Ginger - The ginger compounds used to treat airway smooth muscle and it is best for asthma. Patient take a clearly breath.
Yoga - The deep breathing was best solution for asthma patient. In the morning patient give some time for yoga it will help in asthma.
Butterbur - Butterbur herb use the leaf, root, and bulb to make medicine. This herb has been used for years to treat asthmatics in Asia.
no it doesn't asthma affects primarily the lower respiratory area i.e. lungs
No, usually the hardness to breath is caused by a sticky gunge produced by the air sacs in your lungs when something irritates them. The gunge can narrow your wind pipe.
Dont worry it sounds worse than it actually is!
