Go to ER....: It sounds like you are having an acute asthma exacerbation. With this much shortness of breath, you need to get treated ASAP before it gets any worse. Asthma attacks can become life-threatening so you don't want to stay home too long. If you don't have someone to drive you, call 911. While you are waiting for 911, try using your rescue inhaler, if you haven't already. But, get to the ER NOW!!!
