In brief: Yes.,..

Bronchospasm and inflammation in the airways can cause the symptoms you describe.
The mucous is typically from both the bronchospasm and airway inflammation. The heart palpitations can be the result of shortness of breath due to asthma, low oxygen level or even the bronchodilator inhaler medications commonly prescribed. If symptoms are worsening, see your doctor or go to the er.
