During the last year have you experienced these symptoms at night, such that they make it difficult for you to fall asleep or wake up?
Do you experience these symptoms more than one day per week?
Do these symptoms affect your job, home activities, school work or family activities in a negative way?
Do you find that your asthma tends to get worse when these symptoms occur?
