    not a teacher

    All the walking was making his asthma worse.

    The amount of walking being done was making his asthma worse.

    e.g.
    All the noise is giving me a headache.
    All the joking still couldn't disguise his unhappiness.

    What is the meaning of "All the walking was making"?
    You need to concentrate on the spacing around your punctuation. I have made corrections to your post in red. Follow these rules:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Do not put a space after opening quotation marks.
    - Do not put a space before closing quotation marks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
