A Year of seasons in the Life of an Asthmatic:
Asthma sufferers will often find certain triggers such as pollen, dust, animal fur and pollution can cause an increase in symptoms at specific times of the year that affects their daily life. Types of triggers vary greatly, are not universal for asthmatics and can be heightened in particular seasons of the year. Seasons such as spring and winter are more commonly thought to be the times of the year which cause the most problems, however this is not the case for everyone.
There are a number of asthmatics, especially those with hay fever, who find spring to be the most difficult season. The start of the pollen season combined with circulating breezes which help distribute the different grass/tree/flower pollens far and wide can not only lead to itchy sore eyes, sneezing and runny noses but also result in wheezing, chest tightness and coughing.
