How Do Relieve Myself From This Feeling of Chest Tightness?

0 votes
I am an asthmatic patient who regularly suffers from severe bouts of asthma. It started out as a mild case of breathlessness when I was a child. At that time, I neglected it thinking that it would go away or subsequently get healed but it gradually developed into an attack of full scale asthma. It was then that I decided to consult the doctor but by then, most of the damage had already been done and since then, I have been suffering a lot due to the severe attacks of asthma. The doctors have put me on a lot of medication. The doctor’s efforts bore result and I was in a good state. The attacks of asthma became lesser and it was pretty much in control. Of late, I have been experiencing some weird things in my life. I feel a little breathlessness while sleeping at the night. I just want to ask you a few questions regarding this issue. The answers to which may help me in resolving my issue.
Is there any medication that helps in loosening up the tight chest in order to breathe easier from the symptoms that I am facing now like pressure, pleurisy pain & pleurisy? I do not want to take antihistamine that will cause palpitations or restlessness but I really do want to breathe a lot easier besides using an air filtration unit and keeping the open window and sitting up in the bed. I am very uncomfortable and have not been sleeping well lately. Do you have any ideas why this situation is occurring? Does anyone have any solution to the problems that I am facing?
 Also, please take note that I tried using old Comb vent inhaler last night; however, I had palpitations as a result of it.
