Do I have Asthma? How would I know?
The symptoms of asthma greatly resemble other bronchial diseases, which sometimes makes diagnosing it more of a challenge. However asthma is commonly ¨under diagnosed¨ which simply means that so many people experience very similar symptoms and never bring it to there physicians attention so go through life without the proper medication and treatment. Patients that have been diagnosed however go through a series of an in depth physical examination, laboratory tests (including a spirometry, peak flow monitoring, chest x-rays, and blood and allergy tests)
