During an asthma attack, the following happen:

The muscle surrounding the airway tightens.
The lining of the airways become swollen.
The mucus glands along the airways increase mucus production.

Symptoms of an attack:

Wheezing – as air passes through the narrowed airways.
Coughing – as the lungs try to dislodge the mucus.
Difficulty in breathing – because the airways smaller and filled with mucus.
