A:   Thank you for your question. We are very sorry you are having such a distressing time with your asthma. Given your extensive medical history, and the fact that you are experiencing central chest pain and difficulty breathing we would strongly recommend that you go to your emergency department for immediate evaluation and treatment. You were also diagnosed with an irregular heart beat, and as a result this chest pain you are experiencing could be related to your heart. Please seek medical attention immediately.
