 Asthma

 Asthma is a common condition that causes coughing, wheezing, tightness of the chest and breathlessness. Most people with asthma who take the appropriate treatment can live normal lives, but left untreated, asthma can cause permanent damage to the lungs.

The usual symptoms of asthma are

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tightness in the chest

Not everyone will get all of these symptoms. Some people experience them from time to time; a few people may experience these symptoms all the time. It is recommended that adults have a review of their asthma medication once a year and children under 12 once every 6 months. As this is a variable condition there may be times where your symptoms worse and improve.

 For patients suffering with asthma, it’s important to be in control of your condition, have you:

  • Used your reliever inhaler (usually blue) more than 3 times a week?
  • Woken at night with asthma symptoms such as cough, wheeze or shortness of breath?
  • Had to alter you normal work or leisure activities due to asthma symptoms?

 If this is happening to you please make an appointment for a review with one of our clinicians.
