How did you figure out you or your kids have asthma? I think my dd has it. I'm taking her to the doctor tomorrow. My husband has it but I know almost nothing about it

He had a chronic cough at night for months until I found him gasping for breath one night. He was referred to a specialist by is pediatrian after his er visit.

I was diagnosed when I was a year old so i dont remember. Early intervention and lung exercises will help. As an adult it only ever bothers me if I'm sick or the air is bad.

We couldn't breathe. :P

For me, I'd get shortness of breath, panic, and my heart would race. EKG and heart u/s to rule out heart issues. Pulmonologist appointment for diagnosis.

DD was very young and we watched her breathing. She sees a children's specialist.

Two years ago, she was running and started having chest pains. She had an EKG and an ultrasound of her heart, it's completely fine. Lately, when she's playing in gym, she struggles to catch her breath. I guess today, she said it felt like her chest was tight and her heart was racing.

My kids were coughing at night for months on end long after they had bronchitis. Apparently bronchitis can trigger it.

I have it and my son has a minor case of it but it only flares up when he is sick.

Mine is triggered mostly by allergies. I was diagnosed as a kid and lucky I only go through about 2 inhalers a year.

My youngest was tested because he always ended up with breathing treatments with just a simple cold. He ended up having a very mild case that is just exacerbated by being sick.

Our Pediatrician diagnosed it. My son had a cough that just kept coming back. he never wheezed or had any of the typical asthma symptoms.

That is how it's starting with her. She saw a cardo who did an EKG snd an ultrasound of her heart. Its fine. Ahe gets chest pain/tightness. She feels like her heart races and she gets dizzy. She puts her hands on her head and stretched her chest and back when it happens to help her. My husband taught her that.
