there can be two possibility to your condition either you have heart condition or you have anxiety problem which psychological.
now for heart problem you will have to visit a cardiologist who will evaluate you properly and rule out causes like arrhythmia,if every thing is normal in your heart than i suggest you go to psychiatrist, it looks more like anxiety problem to me than heart, also when you go to cardiologist kindly show him the medication your taking for asthma, because a few orally taken medication can cause the symptoms like yours.
thank you
