Could you have asthma? Find out what you can do to prevent asthma from interrupting your life
The ongoing cough you can’t get rid of could be a signal that you have asthma, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI). Asthma is a chronic lung disease that affects 20.3 million people in the United States. It accounts for approximately 14.5 million missed work days for adults and 14 million missed school days for children annually.
For people who have asthma, the air flowing in and out of their lungs may be blocked by muscle swelling and squeezing. Common symptoms of asthma include cough, chest tightness, shortness of breath and wheezing.
