Asthma is an inflammation of the bronchi, which causes swelling and narrowing of the airways and the production of extra mucous. This inflammation triggers cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, dyspnea, and chest tightness. This condition becomes worse at night and early in the morning. Asthma occurs from partially known genetic factors and contact with the environment. Heart problems include any condition that harms the heart.

Heart disease slowly progresses over time. Some of the first signs of heart problems include swelling of the ankles, chest pain, leg cramps, headaches, fatigue, leg cramps during walking, and shortness of breath. Some of the most common heart problems include atherosclerosis, valvular heart disease, myocarditis, angina, and arrhythmia.

Asthma is a respiratory condition that causes the airway to swell or narrow unexpectedly or suddenly and can also lead to the production of extra mucus. This occurs mostly when people are exposed to certain allergens, and also due to some infections in the respiratory tract. The various symptoms of asthma include chest tightness, wheezing, cough, and dyspnea. The duration of these symptoms is the reason why the various types of asthma are based on the severity of the problem.

This can be intermittent and can persist for a longer period of time. On the other hand, heart problems are a number of conditions that can damage the heart. Depending on the various causes, there are different types of heart problems; they include; arrhythmia, angina pectoris, myocarditis, valvular heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, etc. Also, the common symptoms of heart problems are chest pain, changes in skin color, fatigue, headache, shortness of breath, etc. Heart problems have a number of causes; these include; high blood pressure, diabetes, congenital heart defects, infections, etc.
