The symptoms of asthma should always be taken seriously because they can lead to severe complications. Please don’t hesitate to contact the board certified physicians at North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates so you can get early treatment, prevent future asthma symptoms, and stay active. You can visit the doctors at any of their three locations in North Texas: Texas Health Dallas, Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano, and Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.
Asthma symptoms occur when airways are inflamed and narrowed due to a combination of swelling, increased mucus, and tightened muscles. The symptoms of asthma include:
A variety of triggers cause asthma symptoms to develop. Each person has their own triggers, so the doctors at North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates will work with you to figure out which ones affect you. Some of the most common triggers include:
It’s important to get an early diagnosis for asthma because symptoms can become severe, and you should be prepared with medication to prevent or relieve a serious asthma attack. You’ll also protect the long-term health of your lungs by getting early treatment.
After your symptoms are determined to be asthma rather than another health condition or an allergy, treatment includes learning to avoid triggers, using medicated inhalers for long-term prevention and short-term relief of an asthma attack, and possibly other oral medications to treat inflammation and lung constriction.
If you develop asthma symptoms, or if you’ve been diagnosed with asthma and your symptoms occur more frequently or your inhaler doesn’t give you enough relief, please don’t hesitate to contact North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates. We’re here to help keep you healthy and actively engaged in your daily life.
