Suffocation feeling

When in heavy traffic or in public transport during peak hours, I am unable to breathe at full stretch and feel like suffocate or collapse or nauseated. What might be the problem and who to consult.

Hi I am Dr Nitish M.D. It looks like you may have asthma. there is a simple test to diagnose it. buy an asthma inhaler from any chemist. When you start having breathlessness, just take a puff, if the breathlessness improves, you are asthmatic. take this test and tell me here again
