Specializes in Pulmonary Critical Care

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.
