The symptoms could be indicative of asthma, but we need more information to make a definitive diagnosis. Have you noticed any other signs such as recurring cough or difficulty breathing?

This could include spirometry tests to measure lung function and peak flow meter readings to assess airflow. The results can help rule in or out other potential causes of her symptoms. [1]
