An A to Z glossary of disabilities

The illness can affect anyone at any age, although the condition usually starts in childhood. During an asthma attack you can feel breathless and wheezy. The symptoms can vary from mild to severe and occur irregular interviews which could be on an hourly or daily basis.

An asthma attack is when the air passages become inflamed and start to swell disrupting the nerve endings in the airways. This narrows the airwaves making it more difficult for the air to travel to and from the lungs.
