I have breathing difficulties even at rest especially while lying

I have breathing difficulties even at rest especially while lying down for almost 6 months. I consulted a doctor about 4 months ago. He prescribed some bronchial dilators and anti-depressant. It cured almost 50%. But now its coming more aggressively. Last night I woke up from sleep because I was suffocating. My forehead started to sweat and vision was blurry. I sat down to breathe. I took some salt because it was looking like low blood pressure. After that sweat stopped but I sat for 15 minutes until I started to breathe normally (but not 100%). Now its been 12 hours but I am facing difficulty breathing

my son is 15 months old and since he was 6 weeks he has breathing episodes were he stops breaths or struggles and his lips go blue. i have taken him to a&e many of times and he has been kept in for observations most of the time. He was then refered to a peadiatric consultant who has given him a blue inhaller and beclametasone a brown steroid one which to some extent has controled it a bit. he is still bad on a night with wheezyness and i have noticed that throughout the day some times his lips go dark blue too this is especially so whilst swimming and while he is active if he is running about and this happens and his lips are blue he goes really quiet and kneels on the floor with his head down he is also not cold. i am getting quiet worried about what this may be now any ideas? thanks
