    Hello, nice question. An asthmatic person usually have episodes of chest-tightness, cough, breathlessness and chest pain. These symptoms are usually triggered by certain environmental conditions eg dust, cold, smoke etc. Also stress and exercises also trigger an attack. Asthma is usually runs in the family ie it is familial. The cause is a chronic, progressive narrowing of the airways by excessive airway secretions. Treatment is possible. Take care
