Re: Asthma vs anxiety

If it's an asthma attack, albuterol will help. If it is anxiety, it won't.

Re: Asthma vs anxiety

You can ask for a Methacoline Challenge. For a long time my doctor just kept telling me my breathing problem was all in my head. Well, last week, I did this test and it came up positive for asthma. So, while I do have anxiety problems, I also have asthma for sure. I saw a pulmonologist for this test. I just started my medicine trials today, so hopefully I find something that works.
