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
