Welcome to healthcaremagic forum...
How many times do you wake up from deep sleep with such symptoms?
The symptoms that you describe are referred to as hypopnea... Multiple such episodes occuring throughout the night is a feature of sleep apnea syndrome...
You need sleep studies(polysomnogram), weight reduction programme and correction of an ENT problem if any...
If such episodes are severe and multiple, you may need the help of breathing support such as CPAP when going to bed...
Consult a pulmonologist, who will examine you, evaluate, suggest specific treatment plan and guide you further...

Welcome to healthcare magic forum,

You havnet mentioned your age and duration of complaints & medication you are taking at the moment. If this condition is worsening, that is if the intensity and frequency of attack is increasing, clearly you need to see a doctor.
Asthma can be treated safely by homoeopathy. Please see a homoepath.
