When You Can’t Afford Medications for Asthma

If you can’t afford a doctor, go to an airport – you’ll get a free x-ray and a breast exam, and; if you mention Al Qaeda, you’ll get a free colonoscopy.

Did we mention finding the money to see a doctor was tight these days?

One condition that you cannot put off from seeing a doctor is Asthma. Asthma is characterized by coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. In this article I’m focusing on the older generation for purpose that you must take care of your health, for example if you do not take care of Asthma in its early stages an upper respiratory infection will occur.

We know is money is tight and that is why it is vital that you contact a health care industry leader in education and advocacy- Social Service Coordinators . Their advocates will help you find a broad array of valuable money-saving social programs; from energy, telephone cost assistance to transportation and property tax programs.

During an asthma attack muscle fibers lining the air passage go into spasm mode, contracting the tubes not allowing for air to pass through causing the wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath.

When your airway is semi-blocked breathing common things around you become irritants such as animals, perfumes, and or tobacco smoke.

When doctors are trying to determine the severity of this condition skin testing can be done, a chest x-ray is a must and sometimes blood tests can help with the diagnosis. Treating asthma can be done through medications, inhalers, and sometimes oxygen.

Adequate treatment and recognition of asthma symptoms can lead to recovery quickly however if you Seniors who wait you might surely find yourself in the hospital.

Awareness and education will help you understand the condition and what steps that needs to be taken to maximize your health care. Take the time for yourself now and you will reap the benefits of a longer healthier future.
