Which of these best describe your asthma?
If you have experienced a severe asthma attack, you may think you have severe asthma. This is a regular misconception.
2.7 million Australians are living with asthma. People with all types of asthma may experience severe and life-threatening asthma attacks. But for up to 200,000 people, they live with a debilitating form of asthma called ‘severe asthma’. Severe asthma is a medical diagnosis that sits in its own category. It results in more frequent severe asthma attacks and ongoing symptoms. People with severe asthma do not respond to the usual asthma medicines, even if are on the correct dosage and take them exactly as prescribed. If you’ve had a severe asthma attack or suffer from breathing difficulty and fatigue often, consider which lived experience most reflects you.
