Lately I have been coughing a lot and i feel it coming from my chest. I usually have a night time cough from my asthma but now I am coughing throughout the day. I didnt know if it could be a chest cold. Normally I start out with a head cold that goes to the chest but this seems to be starting the chest is that possible? I'm also having shortness of breath and chest tightness and I have lost my appetite also.

Yes, sometimes you can get only chest illnesses. I knew someone once (that didn't have asthma) that didn't have any sign of a cold but ended up with walking pneumonia. If you feel that you have something wrong, it's best to get checked out by your doctor to be on the safe side.
