Were you looking for information about Asthma? Asthmia is a common misspelling of asthma.
Asthma is a condition that affects the airways that move air into and out of your lungs. When a person with this condition is exposed to certain allergens or irritants, he or she may experience symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, or trouble breathing. Although asthma is not curable, it can be well controlled with medications given by your healthcare provider.
