Question respiratory problems

before i start, let me tell you, no need to tell me to see a doctor. it's night now and i am making an appointment first thing in the morning. i just want to do some research for now as to what this could potentially be..

so since a few days i am suffering from shortness of breath, tight chest and i sometimes feel like my throat is closing up.
i have no phlem, i dont cough and i dont have a sore throat. i also don't smoke, but i like in a heavily polluted city.

i have had issues like this before, but only for MAXIMUM an hour. and only very rarely. this issue is closing in on a week now and seems to be worse in the evening. it also seems to get worse everyday.

i was under quite a bit of stress earlier this week, but i am sleeping7-9h a day. i don't exercise.

i also noticed i am yawning more than usual as a result of this breathing problem.

oh yeah, and my grandmother had asthma.

what could this be? i checked out listed syptoms of asthma but it seems that it doesnt quite hit the nail on the head... any ideas?
