It is possible that your asthma is getting worse and allergic triggers need to be excluded. You need to check with your Chest Physician on your asthma control.
Occasionally such chest pains can be due to anxiety and taking slow deep breaths is recommended.
If you have a family history of heart disease, a fasting cholesterol check will be worthwhile.
