Asthma attacks and flare-ups can be extremely uncomfortable, and you probably don’t want to wait hours—or even days—to speak with your primary care doctor.

What Causes Asthma Attacks?

There are multiple types of asthma, and the symptoms can vary according to what type you have. Some people experience mild symptoms consistently, while others notice that symptoms come as asthma “attacks” after exposure to triggers like:

  • Air pollution
  • Mold
  • Pet hair
  • Dust mites
  • Tobacco smoke

Common Asthma Symptoms & When to Call 911

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 25 million Americans live with asthma. Common asthma symptoms include:

  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness
  • Coughing
  • Trouble speaking
  • Rapid breathing
  • Difficulty sleeping

Most of the time, asthma symptoms can clear up with help from an inhaler or from medical professionals at a center like PhysicianOne Urgent Care. However, if you experience shortness of breath or wheezing that rapidly worsens or shortness of breath after very mild physical activity, be sure to call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Father and Daughter Having Fun
I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care.
