Hey how's it going?

I myself have asthma and i'd say symptoms include difficulty in breathing, it feels like your breathing in and out in a balloon! A really tight feeling like someone's sitting on your chest when you breathe, and wheezing also can be a sign. Struggling to breath in and feeling like you're not getting enough air are also signs!

Hope this helped you if you have any questions just ask me! :-)

The question you asked can only be answered by writing a book.

One observation regarding asthma is that the degree of sensitivity to antigens can vary greatly from day to day and month to month. This means that a person can have a severe asthmatic attack warranting intubation, and after treatment and absence of irritants (perhaps changing where they live) and triggers the lung will stop being "twitchy" and they can live normal lives without daily medication.

Some people have chronic asthma that never goes away and others have "episodes" which may last days, weeks or months...and suddenly there is a remission.

This universe of individuals is most at risk from death, because they invariably stop carrying along their emergency albuterol inhaler. Weeks and months go by without problems and they become complacent.

Once you have had a life-threatening episode, you should always carry an emergency inhaler, no matter how swimmingly things are going.

Often, following a chest infestion the lung bedcomes "twitchy", for lack of a better term, and asthmatics attacks can be brought on under circumstances that would otherwise not provoke a situation. This "twitchiness" may last for many weeks, and during that time a special effort should be made to avoid antigens and carry the emergency albuterol inhaler.
