Asthma is a clinical syndrome of chronic airway inflammation characterized by recurrent and reversible airway obstruction. Most people with asthma will not develop COPD, However, it’s possible to have both. Asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) occurs when someone has these two diseases at a time. Signs of ACOS include difficulty in breathing, wheezing, frequent coughing, excess phlegm, feeling tired, low physical tolerance for exercise, shortness of breath during routine activities. Common triggers for asthmatic symptoms include exposure to allergens (dust mites, cockroach, molds and pollens), exercise and viral infections. Most people who have asthma are treated with daily medicine, called long-term control medicines, along with inhalers containing medicine for short-term relief.
