Does not matter: It is persistent asthma that is uncontrolled and symptomatic. Nightly awakenings are likely also. More importantly, the dose of anti-inflammatory medication must be increased, for example inhaled steroids. To be safe check with your lung doc to make nothing else is going on - although unlikely.

Asthma: These are common symptoms in asthma exacerbations of all degrees and should prompt you to seek medical attention.
