His symptoms are
1. He wakes up in the middle of the night catching his breath suddenly and it scares him
2. He gets out of breath easier than any other child when he is playing
3. He suffers a great deal from chest infections especially at winter. He has a constant chest infreaction all winter and then it seems to go in the summer.
