Hello I'm Dr Chip
Did you get a chest x-ray?
And what exactly do you mean by shortness of breath?
And how long does it take to catch your breath?
That sounds like a case of viral or bacterial bronchitis that's been complicate by your asthma
For now you can try oral probiotics and Mucinex but if that doesn't clear this in a couple of days you need a chest x-ray and you may need a course of oral antibiotics
Please let me know if you need any more information
