How do you know it's asthma vs post nasel drip?

I know people have alergies (allergies) and that can cause both asthma and post nasel drip, but how do you really know which it is? I ask that because I know I have allergies to dust and can't escape that regardless of all the measure I have taken. I tried taking allergy medicains but they just dried up my throat. So I went a night without taking any medications, and woke with nose stuffyness, ear's draining and could not breath. So I tried a different approach, I use the inhealed striods and nasel steriod spray and now see to be doing fine.
