Asthma question

Patient

Q: I was drinking a glass of crystal lite and I breathed in at the wrong time a couple of days ago. I inhaled the fluid and for the next several hours I coughed alot and when I coughed I could taste the drink again. I have had asthma for over 26 years. I know when I have pnemonia and when I am about to have an attack. But since I inhaled the drink I have a heaviness and I feel sometimes like I am short of breathe. I am laid off from my job and it looks to be permanent. My husband job hasnt given him his benefits yet. I just need to know if this is something I need to worry about, or will it pass.
