You may have asthma – Health Questions

I’ve been having trouble breathing constantly for a few weeks now, and my breathing is especially rapid when exercising or climbing stairs. I also have a cough and phlegm problem, especially in the morning. I also experience pain and tightness in my chest.


The symptoms you describe may be indicative of a number of potential problems with the respiratory system. In particular, symptoms such as difficulty breathing, cough, phlegm, and chest pain may be signs of several different respiratory diseases or conditions. However, when we put together the symptoms you are experiencing, a possible cause could be asthma.

Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that occurs as a result of inflammation and narrowing of the airways. This can lead to symptoms such as difficulty breathing, cough, wheezing, expectoration, and chest tightness. Symptoms are often related to triggering factors, such as exposure to allergens, exercise or stress.

We recommend that you see a specialist doctor for a definitive and early diagnosis.
