Halloween is a time for ghosts, goblins, and all things scary, but for those with asthma, the real fright might be in the uncertainty of recognizing their symptoms.
Common symptoms that could haunt you:
- Shortness of breath: Just like the feeling you get when you’re startled by a scary movie scene, you might experience a sudden difficulty catching your breath.
- Wheezing: This symptom can sound like the high-pitched sighs of a ghost, a whistling that occurs with each breath.
- Coughing: Persistent, especially at night.
- Chest tightness: It might feel like there’s an invisible band around your chest, tightening with each attempt you make to breathe normally.
Evaluating your asthma symptoms:
If you recognise the symptoms and suspect asthma, contact your healthcare provider for an asthma evaluation. If they are a partner of AsthmaTuner, you can use our services for an in-depth assessment. You can also contact Min Doktor immediately, through their online assessment
