Common Asthma Symptoms

Asthma is an inflammatory disease that affects the airways of the lungs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), asthma is very common, with more than 25 million Americans living with the condition. Symptoms include:

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

What Causes Asthma Attacks?

There are multiple types of asthma and, depending on the type, its impact can vary. Some people experience mild asthma symptoms frequently while others find that their asthma symptoms come as “attacks” and are triggered by external sources like tobacco smoke, air pollution, mold, pet hair, or dust mites.

When to Seek Medical Attention

If you’re experiencing a mild asthma flare-up, PhysicianOne Urgent Care has you covered. However, you should call 911or go to the nearest emergency room if you experience shortness of breath after very mild physical activity or shortness of breath or wheezing that rapidly worsens.

"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."
