For those with asthma, having to deal with breathing irregularities can be a terrifying issue. Some symptoms of asthma include shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness. Dr. Raymond Casciari of St. Joseph Hospital of Orange says those with severe asthma may have airways that are pretty much constantly inflamed. This is a problem because your airflow is restricted to the point where you have trouble breathing, even when you’re not pushing yourself physically.
