Asthma - Overview
Asthma is a psychosomatic disorder - triggered as much by allergens as by dysfunctional relationships and stress. It is a long-term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. Some of the common symptoms of asthma include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. These episodes may occur a few times a day or a few times in a week. Depending on the person, they may become worse at night or with exercise. People who suffer from asthma rarely breathe easy. Even the parents of children who suffer from asthma worry over their child’s every breath.
It is important to understand that asthma should not be considered a single disease. It does not have a uniform pattern of presentation. Early medical consultation can help control asthma. So, don’t let the wheeze of asthma strangle your zest for life. Take early treatment to cope with it.
