Asthma: In general, the most common causes of shortness of breath are either heart disease or lung disease. Although there are many reasons for a person to wheeze, with your history of asthma it may just be your asthma flaring up especially as the season begins to change from summer to fall. I think the bigger question is why are you requiring oxygen in the first place? Talk to your doctor about this.
