Asthma Q & A

What is asthma?

Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that occurs commonly in both children and adults. The condition is characterized by narrowing of your airways, which makes it hard to move air in and out of your lungs. 

For some, asthma is simply an inconvenience, and symptoms are easily managed with at-home care. In other cases, asthma gets in the way of normal daily routines and can even be life-threatening. 

There is no cure for asthma. Treatment focuses on managing symptoms and helping you find ways to avoid triggers that can provoke an asthma attack. 


What are the symptoms of asthma?

Your symptoms will vary from those of others, including close family members with asthma. Some things to keep an eye out for include:

  • The sensation of chest tightness or pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sleep disruptions caused by wheezing or coughing
  • A wheezing or whistling sound during exhaling
  • Wheezing or coughing that worsens if you have the flu or a cold

Some sufferers notice their symptoms worsening during exercise or when exposed to environmental allergens like pollen, chemical fumes, mold spores, or dust. There is a strong connection between allergies and asthma, which is why it’s so important to find an effective allergy care strategy.  


When should I see a doctor about asthma symptoms?

If you notice symptoms that last more than a few days, it’s a good idea to come in for a diagnostic exam. Treating asthma in the early stages can prevent lung damage and stop symptoms from worsening. 

For those who’ve already been diagnosed with asthma, any sudden changes in symptoms should prompt an immediate visit. 

If you find yourself having to use your inhaler more often or if you suffer an acute asthma attack, you should come to Chicago Immediate Care right away. The team can assess your condition, provide urgent care treatment, and then help you find a long-term treatment path that works for your lifestyle. 

If you’d like to book a diagnostic exam, call or use the easy online booking tool to set up a visit. For fast response to asthma symptoms, simply come into any of the three Chicago Immediate Care locations.
