Chronic Chest & Respiratory

Chronic chest pain comes on gradually over time and like asthma, may be a long-term condition. Overuse is a more common cause of these pains and issues, rather than a specific injury or impact. Injuries or conditions in another part of the body, such as the back or stomach, may be causing the chest pain and may get worse with activity. These chronic pains should be checked out by a doctor to find the original underlying cause, so they can prescribe treatment to help ease the pain.


Asthma is an inflammatory disorder of the airways which causes shortness of breath and 'wheezing'. Its severity can range from mild, with only occasional symptoms, to a severe and life-threatening condition.
