In brief: Asthma

When asthma is poorly controlled it can increase work of breathing: The person will be working harder to move air in and out because the breathing tubes are narrowed.
One way to assess if the asthma is well controlled in to do daily peak flow (There are normative data for your gender and your height). The person will need thorough evaluation for asthma

In brief: Possible

Low oxygen is usually not present even in severe asthma but the answer to your question is yes, it is possible.
There are however many causes for fatigue if controlling your asthma failed to improve your sense of exhaustion.

In brief: Mgt

I would suggest reviewing your asthma symptoms and action plan.
If you experience asthma symptoms with exercise, pre medication with Albuterol before starting to exercise is advised. A virtual appointment may be booked online Healthtap.com/DosanjhMD Code NCYHPZ
