Q.

Asthma

I've been feeling quite short of breath, I've felt over the past few days like I can't breathe properly, or at least not very deeply except for when I yawn so I've been yawning loads so I can breathe more but this constricted feeling around my chest is unbearable. I've had this feeling before but usually for no more than half an hour at a time but now it has been a constant for 3 days and I'm going crazy.
