Whenever I walk a short distance not even for a minute my pulse rate goes from 85 beats per minutes to 102-126 beats per minute and I have difficulty breathing. I do have asthma but is this normal or is there something going on?
There i doubt is anyone who can answer that question other than your doc. There are very specific tests that a doc has to conduct to find out if it is indeed asthma or another pulmonary issue. Alot is taken into consideration like why kind of shape you are in physically, personal lifestyle habits ie: smoking, sleep patterns, weight, exercise programs, etc. Your heart may just have an extra load on it because of any factors at all. If you use an inhaler for your asthma it could be that its time to switch it out if you have built up a tolerance to it...alot of things figure into this picture..i would make an appt. w. the doc to see what could be going on and inhalers are notorious for increasing the heart rate.
