Pulmonologist 's  Response
If you are still breathless, it means that your asthma is not under control. You should visit a pulmonologist who will regularize treatment and if required may put you on short course of oral steroids. I`ll suggest that you should consult a cardiologist also to rule out any other cause of breathlessness especially related to heart.
