    Ask your doctor about getting your inhalers changed to a stronger medication and ask if your currenr dose should be increased.  Chest burning along with pain can be signs of acid reflux which can occur if you are under stress.  Worrying about your asthma may well have triggered this,  i have acod reflux and have experienced burning and chest pain with it when feeling anxious.  Don't google your symptoms; this will make them worse. Instead, take the advice of your doctor.

      No, I never get short of breath with acid reflux.  I only get burning, occasional chest pain that can be tender to touch or nausea. Often the acid makes me cough if it is silent heartburn.

    ok so update. ive got so tired of this. i ended up going to the emrgency room. after a chest x-ray they told me i had some inflammation on my lungs. they diagnosed me with acute bronchitis and send me home with antibiotics and an inhaler. i will get the antibiotics tommorow since i came back from the mergency room an hour ago. hopefully these antibiotics help.
