Good reminders of some of the common early warning signs before an asthma episode. Some, like these specifically, Hoarse voice or dry mouth Difficulty speaking/talking in full sentences Raised shoulders/slouching are ones I need to pay more attention to since I know for a fact that they are early warning signs for me. Good article and reminder! Thanks AAFA!!
