Breathing problems have many impacts on ones sleep. This affects not only the physical being of an individual but has its impact at many levels I.e. mental and social being. Asthma is a condition in which narrowing of airways occurs along with increase in production of mucus. This causes difficulty in breathing accompanied by wheezing and coughing, all which are more pronounced during sleep. For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.

Identifying the signs and symptoms..
 
Asthma signs and symptoms include:
·       Shortness of breath
·       Chest tightness or pain
·       Trouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing
·       A whistling or wheezing sound when exhaling (wheezing is a common sign of asthma in children)
·       Coughing or wheezing attacks that are worsened by a respiratory virus, such as a cold or the flu
 
Factors playing the game..
 
These signs and symptoms may vary from individual to individual and from one situation to another. For example in some individuals such signs and symptoms may flare up in situations like during exercise, cold & dry weather, industrial workers dealing with fumes, gases and dust. It may also be due to an allergic reaction to pollen, mold spores, cockroach waste or particles of skin and dried saliva shed by pets (pet dander).
 
There is great amount of evidence from various studies which quote that asthma causes respiratory-related sleep disturbances which contributes to several disorders, including hypertension, cardiac dysfunction, and insulin-resistance. A mutual relationship has been found between asthma-related symptoms and sleep disturbances. Research studies prove difficulties inducing sleep, sleep fragmentation on polysomnography, early morning awakenings and daytime sleepiness are more common in asthmatics compared with subjects without asthma. Doctors believe that sleep and night control of asthma could be relevant to evaluate disease’s control.
 
Asthma can not be cured but we can control signs and symptoms of the same. When asthma is controlled, there should be no more than occasional recurrence of symptoms and severe exacerbations should be rare.

When to see a doctor..?
 
If you have frequent coughing or wheezing that lasts more than a few days or any other signs or symptoms of asthma, see your doctor. Treating asthma early may prevent long-term lung damage and help keep the condition from worsening over time.
