I need to know if I can stop asthma attack, I have asthma when I was a child and it’s coming back when I’m adult

I’m a 22 years old female. I’m having dry cough and sometimes there are phlegm. Every time I inhaled a breath, I will have the urge to cough and the cough make my chest feel a sharp pain through my back. After coughing too much, the side of my chest felt bruised and my shoulder felt weak. My hands also shaking non-stop. If I do heavy activities I get shortness of breaths and wheezing sounds. My body is in pain and I’m afraid my rib cage will fracture I cough constantly.
