Doctors, do you think I can die from having an asthma attack while sleeping?

In brief: Unlikely....

Symptoms of an asthma exacerbation include shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, etc.
These symptoms will awaken you or cause you not to be able to fall asleep in the first place. If you experience shortness of breath, see your doctor ASAP or go to the ER.
