Random faster heartbeats lasting for hours. Have mild asthma and smoking addiction. Treatment?

For the past month, randomly, my heart beats harder than usual and faster. It continues to do so for hours. I was diagnosed with mild asthma when I was 15, I m 20 now, but I also smoke a lot, daily. I m not sure if any of those play into account but, I keep having to take really deep breaths to feel like I m getting enough oxygen and it s extremely worrying when I m just relaxing and I can feel it almost fighting for hours. What could this be and what should I do??

Hi,first and foremost QUIT SMOKING NOW ! You are having early signs of COAD -Chronic obstructive airway disease.You only are responsible for your well being,so don't let your health slip away from your grasp.Consult a Pulmnologist/Physician,get done a Chest x-ray and follow his advise.But as of now quitting smoking is of utmost priority for you and I am sure you are strong willed enough to do it.Take care and wish you good health and a bright future ahead.
