What causes shortness of breath?

Hello. I have been having trouble breathing for about a month in a half now. It came out of nowhere and I ve never experienced something like this before. I had asthma when I was little but this doesn t exactly feel like asthma. It feels different. I feel like I can t take a satisfying deep breath and it scares me. I went to the doctor and he prescribed me an inhaler but I feel like it s making little to no difference. The chest X-ray was clear he said. So I m wondering if someone with more experience in lungs can help me? I just want to feel normal again.
