Asthma, gas pressure in upper chest, rib cage and shoulder area

I have gas pressure in my upper chest, rib cage and shoulder area. This pressure increases when my asthma acts up. I believe it is a result of inflammation , but cannot be sure. How might I go about fixing the problem. It is most definitely respiratory related, not digestive or related to my heart.

It could be due to the increased expiratory effort in acute asthma or associated Gastro esophagic reflux disease for which you might need to take anti acidity medications along with your asthma medicines.
