Hello and hope you are doing well.

Cough, chest tightness and breathlessness, the three symptoms are the triad of symptoms for Asthma. It is a disease affecting the lungs causing narrowing of the airways, usually due to an allergic reaction to triggering factors. Therapy is with bronchodilators which cause the airways to dilate. This can be detected by a spirometry test. Lung function tests could further help in evaluation. Have yourself evaluated for the same. This will help to confirm the diagnosis.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
