Hi Welcome to Heathcare Magic

Asthma is a allergic reaction of the tracheobronchial tree of lungs.. family history will be there, seasonal variations( more in winter), early morning attack will be there.. on exposure to dust, pollen grains, any kind of allergic things will aggravate it.. as per above condition it is not asthma..

I almost always feel like i cant catch my breath and that im not getting enough air. Even if i amnot doing any physical activites. I could be sitting on my couch watching tv, and i would get this feeling. It also does happen when i am doing physical activities too. I also noticed that it gets a little worse after i consume caffine. I also experience a pain in my chest too. It feels like pressure and like my airways are closed. I am starting to become more and more alarmed every day. I have been to the ER for this problem and i was told that it may be asthma or anxiety . I feel as if it is not anxiety though. I am not really anxious that often. I also have some stomach problems too. After any type of food i eat, my stomach hurts. I also constantly feel fatigued a lot of the time.
