Our understanding of asthma may be limited to shortness of breath and shortness of breath, but this is just a typical manifestation during the attack.

Let me tell you a little bit about it.
Mr. Li, 38, had often felt chest tightness before, especially during the season. He also thought it might be caused by illness, because his father had heart disease, so he was suspicious, but after repeated heart examinations, no problem was found.
And then we did a lung check, and it turned out to be chest tightness variant asthma.
