Asthma : Definitely visit your allergist or primary care provider for additional options. It's important to find out if allergies are triggering these symptoms. An allergist might also consider you for Omalizumab injections. You should go to the ER if the symptoms aren't getting better and if you are still experiencing shortness of breath with chest tightness
