Question More newbie questions - Asthma

I am being treated for adult on-set asthma but I don't get any relief from my breathing shortness and/or chest tightness/lung-area pains with the use of the albuterol rescue inhaler. These symptoms have all just began in the last 6 weeks or less.
I am also now on a corticosteroid inhaler which I'm not sure if this is masking other problems or not since I don't see my new rheumie for 2 more weeks.

Question:
Has anyone else been wrongly diagnosed with asthma in the early stages of being diagnosed with lupus or suddenly developed asthma as a part of lupus?

Thanks,
Gina
