Difficulty breathing: I wonder if you may have a Respiratory infection . If you are breathing fast and still short of breath after using your inhalers , I suggest you call 911 to get to the nearest hospital ASAP .

Need to see your doc: You need to use your rescue inhaler and get in with your family doctor asap. It definitely can be an infectious cause.
