Is It Asthma?

Is It Asthma

You probably know the common symptoms of asthma, like shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. But did you know there are other respiratory illnesses with similar symptoms? Some of them include:

  • Pneumonia
  • Allergies
  • Viral infections
  • Sinus infection
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Recurrent cough not due to asthma

If you have symptoms of asthma, it is important to be properly diagnosed. If you are on a treatment plan for asthma but the treatment does not seem to be working, you might not have asthma or you may need a different type of asthma medicine. Work with your doctor to find the right diagnosis and treatment.

Whether you have asthma or a different condition, the right diagnosis is critical for your treatment plan and quality of life.
