Who Has Asthma and WhyMay 7, 2014
Types of Asthma
If you experience wheezing, coughing, chest tightness or shortness of breath at work, you may have occupational asthma. People with this condition usually work around chemical fumes, dust or other irritants in the air.
If you start wheezing or coughing during exercise, or if physical exertion makes it difficult for you to breathe, you may have exercise-induced
bronchoconstriction, or EIB.
