Chest discomfort can come from a number of causes including heart burn from reflux, bronchitis or pneumoniae and heart problems. In people who have symptoms that may be consistent with chest pain, EKG is the first test to evaluate a possible heart condition. Physical examination and a chest xray can determine if a breathing problem is responsible. I would suggest that you be evaluated by your doctor to have him listen to your lungs and performs some minimal testing which should be able to tell you if this is a new symptom of your asthma. Good luck
