I've been diagnosed with mild asthma since the age of 7. I take Proventil albuterol inhaler as needed, although it has become multiple times a day for the past few months. I've also been very anxious during this time. Sometimes I feel my chest tightening and difficulty breathing, although my peak flow is normal or even sometimes better than normal. I take a puff, and I seem to breathe a bit better. Is this actually my asthma or anxiety? Sometimes I just can't tell, since both scare me to death. Anyone else? Thanks.
