It sounds like you haven't been shown properly how to use it as it works for others. Why not take your inhalers and spacer into your pharmacist and ask them to show you? They will know. There are also lots of demos on YouTube.
As far as I'm aware there are no injections for asthma.
I would go back to doctors/ asthma nurse. There are inhalers that you just breathe in and the dose is released or powder inhalers but they are different medications to the ones you take.
I was told to use a spacer as every time I take the clenli inhaler, I gag. When using the spacer take deep breaths, push button and keep breathing.
But speaks just to your doctor, see what they can advice. Be firm but within politeness, so they understand where you are coming from.
hope it gets sorted!
