So, you need advice on the use of an asthma inhaler from your doctor. Every person's situation is different, so not only do you need to ask about whether to use an inhaler, but also which one is right for you.

my PCP said that it is OK to try asthma inhaler, but since I do not have asthma it is unlikely to help.
My shortness is definitely related to GERD / stomach acid, since it goes away with exercise and is provoked by lying down and bending
