Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and dilate, potentially producing mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, whistling sounds (wheezing) when you are breathing.
Because sleep apnea can affect your health and enjoyment of life, it's important to diagnose if you have sleep apnea. Effective treatment can help you get back to your best.
Shortness of breath
Chest tightness or pain
Wheezing when exhaling
Trouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing
Coughing or wheezing attacks that are worsened by respiratory viruses
The roots of this chronic condition are a million-dollar question—one science has yet to come up with the full answer for. There are clues as to who might be at greater risk for it: namely, children of parents with asthma and children with a family history of allergies, which often accompany asthma. Some research has found that genetic factors account for as much as 70% of a person’s risk of having asthma.
Asthma can’t be cured, but can be controlled.
