Asthma is a disorder that results in the swelling of a person’s airway. When the airway to the lungs swell and narrow in succession it leads to shortness of breath, chest tightness and pain, coughing and wheezing. Exercise, dust and pollens, stress, and tobacco smoke are common causes of asthma attacks.
