Brief Answer: You do seem to have asthma. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, You have allergies and reflux and from your description, it appears that you are also having asthmatic symptoms which is responsible for breathing difficulty and tightness in the chest. In an asthmatic, reflux aggravates the symptoms. Similarly sinusitis and post nasal drip also aggravate the symptoms of asthma. You should continue with nexium, nasonex and zertec for reflux and allergies. For breathlessness, you have to start taking inhalers. You should take combimist which will give you instant relief. It can be taken as nebulization as well. You should also take seroflo inhaler which will control your symptoms over long time. Consult your physician for detail advice on these. Avoid allergens like dust, smoke etc as much as you can. Also avoid extreme cold climate and cold and dry air. You may consult an ENT for your post nasal drip. I`m sure that these measures will be of help.
