Asthma occurs when the linings of airways become inflamed and swollen and muscle spasms constrict airflow to the lungs. An "asthma attack" is characterized by labored or restricted breathing, a tight feeling in the chest, coughing and wheezing. The condition can develop quickly and may vary in severity from mild discomfort to life-threatening attacks. More Info...............
