I don`t know if I have asthma, but sometimes, very rarely. Once in 4 or 5 months I get a shortess in breath, and my heart rate increases. How can you explain such a thing?
It sounds like you're asking for a specific diagnosis, which is more than I can provide online. Only a detailed history and physical exam by a healthcare professional can provide enough information to make a specific diagnosis. Please discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider.
