Asthma: It seems your asthma is not controlled well, you need a maintenance inhaler. If you have not seen an allergist or pulmonologist, you need to see one sooner than later. Don't leave your asthma uncontrolled, nocturnal symptoms tend to be severe and creep up on you and land you in the er before you know it.

Asthma control: Night-time asthma that occurs more than twice a month indicates the asthma is not controlled based on national guidelines. An asthma specialist can assist in developing a treatment plan (avoidance of allergens/irritants), medications (quick-relief, controller) and possibly allergy injections (if allergic asthma) to keep that asthma at bay and allow a good nights sleep!
