Diane, While what AT says about allergic asthma is certainly true, difficulty breathing can be a symptom of many things, not just asthma, so it's important not to just assume and not seek a true diagnosis or treatment.
I'd encourage you to have a discussion with your doctor about how you've been feeling. The more info you can provide about when you have trouble breathing, what kind of trouble you have (are you breathless? do you wheeze? are you coughing a lot? does your chest feel tight?), if anything relieves it and how long it lasts, the better your doctor will be able to determine what's going on and how to treat you.
So give your doctor a call, OK?
To your health,
Nearly half of all adults with asthma are triggered by allergies. Allergic asthma means you will find it hard to breathe when you encounter these allergens. Here is some more info about asthma triggerered by allergies.
Hope this helps!
