In brief: Medications/M.D.

This is a very serious symptom and can indicate that your oxygen level is low.
If your asthma is not under good control, additional medications may be used. It is important to speak with your physician as soon as you can. If you are allergic to dust, mold, pet dander, or other allergens, try to clean extensively and avoid these triggers. If you are allergic, on high pollen days keep windows closed.
