Its not something you suddenly have and the army knows that.
I know two people got med boarded out of the Air Force for asthma. I know two who stayed in but are non-deployable, but they can pass their run. So in total, that's 4 people I know, who somehow "developed" asthma while in the military. I don't think it's too uncommon.

But I agree with what's already been said. If you don't want to re-class and you're being offered a medical separation I'd take it. If you have enough time in service, use your GI Bill to get your degree and get a good job.
