For about 2 months i've been coughing, wheezing, had chest tightness and breathlessness. Is seeing an allergy/asthma dr a good idea?

In brief: Yes, good idea

An allergist can assist you in identifying the triggers of the cough, wheeze, etc, perform an examination, perform a breathing test called spirometry, and prescribe the right medications to control/prevent the symptoms as well as a quick relief medication to give rapid relief.
