What Is night time (nocturnal) asthma?

ANSWER

This is a very common type of asthma. More than 90% of people with asthma wheeze and cough at night. Symptoms are most common between midnight and 8 a.m. That can keep you from getting restful sleep. If so, it could be a sign that your asthma isn’t well controlled. See you doctor about possible changes to your treatment.
