New asthma patient

Hello, I'm new, 25 male, I recently got diagnosed with gerd, it had gotten into my lungs and a few other places and caused havoc. They had me take a pulmonary functions test, which showed a difference of 18% and they discovered I now have asthma. I've gotten the gerd under control but now the lung problems have gotten much worse. It hurts to breathe to deep. Almost everything irritates my throat now, my throat feels like it tries to shut on me almost daily. This is all new to me and scares the hell out of me. With all this smoke from the fires in Montana, I'm scared to even go outside. I feel like I have to fight just to stay conscious. Does anyone have any advice? Or treatments I should talk to my doc about, or anything really? Thank you for reading this.
