Management plans: From your description, your asthma or lung problems are not under control as yet. Developing an asthma plan, taking the asthma control test and bringing this with you to your next visit, along with spirometry will help your physician determine the best treatment. Knowing what triggers your asthma and avoiding environmental factors that trigger the symptoms is an important part of the management.
