Asthma can impact people differently depending on which type of asthma they have. Some people experience mild symptoms frequently, while others experience asthma “attacks” after exposure to certain triggers like air pollution, mold, or dust. Common asthma symptoms include:
- Trouble speaking
- Shortness of breath
- Chest tightness
- Rapid breathing
- Difficulty sleeping
Usually, asthma symptoms can clear up with help from an inhaler or from medical professionals at a center like PhysicianOne Urgent Care. However, if you have shortness of breath or wheezing that rapidly worsens or shortness of breath after very mild physical activity, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room for treatment.
