In brief: Allergic trigger

Asthma is often triggered by something to which you have an allergic or inflammatory respone.
Also can be caused by exercise, cold air or fluid, also tension, stress or emotional triggers. The "tightness is the body's reaction to those triggers and needs treatmenty, usually with an inhaler. See an acute care clinic or your pcp.
