See doctor...: If a known asthmatic is having increasing shortness of breath despite treatment, they should be seen in an er today. Increasing shortness of breath can be a sign of a life-threatening asthma episode and needs urgent attention. Your boyfriend may need his meds adjusted but first a life-threatening episode needs to be ruled out.
