In brief: Possibly...
...It's reflux (heartburn) that is triggering the attacks.
Ask your doctor about possibly treating that.

In brief: Smaller meals...
Strategy would be to eat smaller meals more frequently to eat the same amount of calories, nutrients, etc without getting "full.
" you should have these sxs evaluated by your doctor to be certain asthma is the etiology of your sxs and not some other entity which would have a different treatment altogether.
