Need evaluation.: Do you have problem getting air in or pushing air out? Do you have trouble talking when you have shortness of breath? Do you get short of breath less than 5 minutes after exercise? If so, consult your allergist to find out if you may have vocal cord dysfunction (vcd) which may or may not co-exist with asthma. The DX of vcd is often not recognized for many years.
