Adult Onset Asthma

Adult onset asthma usually appears following an upper respiratory infection and you continue to have some of the symptoms listed above.  The above symptoms can be low grade for up to 10-30 years.  Patients will be diagnosed as asthmatics; however, they are suffering with a low-grade infection that can be curable.

 

Symptoms Include:
  • Cough – Ongoing dry cough or cough with phlegm

  • Gasping for Breath – Frequent respiratory infections, shortness of breath, gasping for air, or wheezing

  • Chest heaviness/congesting – A squeezing or tightening in the chest area

  • Fatigue – Feeling continually worn out, not having the desire or ability to exercise 

  • Weakness – Feeling continually worn down and weak

  • Sputum Production – Coughing up and spitting out the material produced in the respiratory tract

  • Wheezing – A whistling or rattling sound in the chest caused by airway obstruction

  • Shortness Of Breath – Frequent respiratory infections, shortness of breath, gasping for air, or wheezing

  • Loss Of Sleep – Unable to sleep causing continual tiredness and fatigue

The Lung Center of America Difference

You do NOT have to live with the symptoms of adult onset asthma when you can live symptom-free. Many of our patients, who had experienced a decline in their quality of life, have returned to their normal active lives.

  • At LCOA, we investigate and treat the cause of the symptoms, not only the symptoms.

  • LCOA provides safe, proven, and effective treatment protocols—individualized for each patient.

  • Our emphysema patients experience significant breathing relief.

  • Dr. Wagshul’s patients are rarely admitted to hospitals or need emergency treatment for breathing problems.
