Do you wake up early or feeling tired at night due to an asthma attack? Then, it is important to read this article carefully. But before that lets us check out few details about this life-threatening lung disease.

Asthma is a condition in which a person's airways become inflamed, narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe. Asthma can interfere with and obstruct your daily activities. While in some cases, it may lead to a life-threatening attack.

Studies gathered indicate that there are over 1.5 million cases of asthma per year. Symptoms of asthma include chest pain, difficulty in breathing, cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, etc. However, some actions could trigger asthma attacks like smoking, odor, exercise, etc. especially if you are diagnosed.

Unfortunately, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, it cannot be cured but can be controlled, and because asthma differs it is important to see your doctor create a treatment plan just for you. This attack can be disturbing and should be treated with caution especially if you wish to have a nice sleep.

However, here are some things you should do before sleeping to have a peaceful sleep.

1. Make sure to wash your blanket, pillow covers, or cloth thoroughly before using it to sleep. Over time, I have noticed triggers when sleeping in the night but after a careful study, I discovered that the cloth or blanket can result to trigger when there is a little amount of sweat odor.

2. Avoid eating heavy or oily food before sleeping. However, if you must eat, it should be a few hours away from your sleeping time and should not be heavy. In a previous article, I share with you the BEST FOOD to eat at night before sleeping to have a peaceful sleep.
