Not related: Your right sided pain may come from the cervical spine and i urge you to consult an orthopedist before things get worse. As for your asthma, you need a controller drug (usually an inhaled steroid) on a daily basis and again this needs to be prescribed by your doctor. Talk to your doctor soon before your asthma gets worse.
