Best Asthma Doctor Near Me in Portland, ME
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition that narrows and irritates the airways of the lungs. Affecting nearly 24 million Americans, asthma is a very common, but non-contagious respiratory disease that usually begins in childhood and continues into adulthood. Asthma may vary in severity from person to person, but common symptoms of asthma include:
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
There is no common cause of asthma. Asthma attacks may be caused by exposure to allergens, illness, exercise, or irritants such as dust and mold. For some people, these attacks are little more than an annoyance, but others may experience extreme, even life-threatening attacks that require immediate medical attention.
Unfortunately, asthma cannot be cured. It can, however, be managed. Along with medication, the symptoms of asthma can be controlled with some lifestyle changes and preventative measures. Talk to your doctor right away if you experience periodic difficulty breathing, sudden coughing, or chest tightness.
