See your Dr first: Given all your symptoms, I cannot recommend going to your fitness class even if you have albuterol. If you are having chest tightness/pain and shortness of breath with difficulty sleeping you should see your Dr in order to step up your asthma treatment and reassess your cold. Colds may progress to bronchitis and sometimes pneumonia can start out like a cold. This should be evaluated by your Dr.
