    Lightbulb Asthma Early Warning Signs everyone should know

    It has been a year since I originally posted this information. Based on a thread on the allergy board, I thought it would be useful for those newer members.

    Most people think of asthma and think wheezing, shortness of breath, tight chest and coughing. There are often other signs of pending attacks as well. I've found that the earlier I recognize a pending attack, the faster I can get a jump on treating it and trying to keep the severity of the attack down. Watching for these signs has become part of my asthma action plan.

    Asthma Early Warning Signs:
    itchy chin
    itchy or sore throat
    dark under eye circles
    stuffy, runny or congested nose
    mood change--grouchy or extra quiet
    itchy, glassy or watery eyes
    stomach ache
    eczema flare-up
    change in face color- pale or flushed
    throat clearing
    heart beating faster
    trouble sleeping
