While asthma symptoms and treatments vary for adults and children, the most common symptom is wheezing. Other symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness or discomfort
  • Cough
  • Trouble sleeping due to coughing or wheezing

Allergens like dust mites, pollen, and pet dander can often lead to asthma attacks, but non-allergic triggers such as weather changes or extremes of temperature, air pollution, emotional stress, or smoke can cause them as well.
