Asthma & Allergies

If on occasion you find it difficult to breathe, you may have asthma. With this disease, your airways react to allergic substances in the air or other “triggers” and become inflamed – leading to chest tightness, coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing.

While less severe, allergies – also called seasonal allergic rhinitis – cause fatigue, sore throat, sneezing and other discomforts.

If you have asthma or allergies, Brunswick Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine can help you alleviate these conditions with the most advanced treatment options. Through our treatments, asthma and allergy sufferers can live active lives. You can also sleep through the night with no interruption from asthmatic or allergic episodes.
