Do people who occasionally get breath shortages have asthma?

I believe if you are having breathing shortages every once in a while then it would probably be ok but if it happens all the time then you more than likely have asthma and i am telling what i know because i have it myself.

I have had bronchitis and it was effecting my breathing. My Dr. said from the way that I was breathing it could become asthma. Lately I've been having trouble breathing and chest pains. I have also been experiencing breath shortages. Could this be asthma?
