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.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"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."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
