Thank you so much for your reply.
Asthma symptoms that occur at night are part of nighttime asthma, or nocturnal asthma, a very common condition for many people with asthma.
Sleep is not the actual trigger, but while we sleep the airways tend to narrow and mucus tends to build up in the airways, often triggering about of coughing.
There are many causes of nocturnal asthma, including:
~At night there are changes in body chemicals, which can increase inflammation.
~The drop in body temperature at night causes airway cooling and narrowing.
~Allergens encountered in the daytime may produce a delayed response three to eight hours later, just in time for nighttime sleep.
~Increased drainage from the sinuses while lying down may trigger a reaction in sensitive airways.
~Lying horizontally may allow some of the stomach contents to rise up into the esophagus. This is called reflux and may trigger an asthma episode in sensitive individuals.
If you do have night time asthma your doctor can prescribe a night time asthma medication taken before bed to help you get through the night without tightness in your chest.
If it is acid reflux you can try antacids before bed and elevating the head of your bed.
Make an appt with your doctor to see if you cant get rid of this.
Some people have success with Singulair taken before bed to help allergies and night time asthma.
