Welcome to e health forum.

From your history, it seems that you have moderate to severe asthma, and you are out of medications.

The only solution to this would be to consult your primary care doctor, and seek a refill of your medications.

To avoid such episodes in future, you might ask your doctor, to increase the number of refills, which you can obtain from each prescription.

I hope this helps.
