Living With and Managing Asthma
In fact, if you have limitations in your ability to exercise and that is blamed by you on asthma then you may have a much larger problem. It may be that your asthma is not being controlled in a correct manner. If this is the case you should immediately stop your program until you are able to meet with a doctor or, if you need, never be afraid to seek out the hospital in an emergency.
All of this can be remedied or at the very least controlled. The Daily Plan You take your inhaler three or four times a day and that will help you to keep it under control, then of course you have your emergency alleviator that gives instant relief from a severe attack of breathlessness. Some people have to take their inhaler through a thing called a spacer, this is especially good for children as well as it gives the child chance to breath a couple of times instead of trying to take their inhaler in one go.
Most people who have been diagnosed with asthma find that medication is a good way to combat the symptoms and sufferings associated with this affliction. Your doctor will no doubt prescribe medicine that will help treat your symptoms, and help prevent the onslaught of an asthma attack. If you have any questions or concerns about your medication, talk to your neighborhood pharmacist or look for information online.
Also asthma in the elderly can have other associated problems like depression, restricted movement because of lack of breath and sleepiness during the day. Smoke and smoking can bring on an asthma attack and even the elderly can still benefit from giving up smoking. Relatives should try not to smoke any where near an elderly relative.
Never treat a child with asthma different to their siblings for fear you will cause an attack as this could cause problems in the family with sibling resentment. Don t be afraid to discipline them all the same. As long as long as your Childs school is aware of the problem and the medication that is needed your child should on the whole enjoy a normal full time education.
Asthma is not a curable condition. It is chronic, and its exact causes are as yet unknown. Even in the face of stunning medical advancements, there are still some conditions that modern medicine cannot eradicate. Though asthma is a chronic and usually lifelong affliction, living with asthma doesn t have to mean living in pain.
