Just here with a quick question

I hope asthma specialists will answer this. I want a detailed answer. Is it possible for Asthma to establish and  form without having coughing, mucus and wheezing breathing? I'm asking this because I have GERD without these symptoms, But I have chest pain and tightness behind breastbone, sometimes shortness of breath, because of hiatal hernia and I'm actually scared I might also have Asthma. I've been like this for 3 years now. Did spirometry almost 2 yearts ago but nothing abnormal. Thank you in advance

It's really a good question you asked. Still, Asthma has so many mysteries which yet to evolve.
Asthma is not equal for all people as it varies within different factors like body immune system and triggering factors such as allergy.  Also, asthma could evolve without any symptoms unless gets a triggering condition.  As you mentioned that you are experiencing chest pain and tightness then my suggestion is to make a concern with local Doc ASAP as it also one of the asthma symptoms. Apart from that, you can follow some home-based natural treatment like "Salt Therapy" using the certain device called Saltair which can be found in stores like "Salinetherapy"

Hello! Yes, I also thought of it, but the doctors told me that no pathology in respiratory had been detected with the results and physical examination. There is one thing causing the symptoms and its whether Anxiety or Hiatal hernia.
