Asthma Cincinnati: We’ll Get You Back in Action
Asthma is a chronic (meaning long-term) lung disease that both inflames the airways of the lungs and narrows them. Very commonly, asthma sufferers experience wheezing, a whistling sound when breathing. Patients with asthma also typically cough, have chest tightness, and shortness of breath.
