Asthma and Breathing Disorders Summary
Asthma is a condition in which your airways swell and produce extra mucus. This leads to breathing being cumbersome and can trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.
Asthma can’t be cured and asthma often changes over time, it’s important to work with your doctor and track your symptoms and adjust treatment as needed.
