Gasping for breath

Not sure if I actually have a problem, I may just be annoyed by asthma.

Often (everyday) I have to gasp for extra air while talking. I usually breathe very deeply. Sometimes, while resting, I breathe deeply enough that people check to make sure I'm still "here". I do have asthma. I don't think it is very bad, or out of control, I just take extra time to breathe while jogging, playing out-of-doors, etc.

My BP averages 115/65; and my pulse averages 70 bpm. I am not over weight, and I live a fairly active life.

Is there an underlying problem, or am I just nuts?
