Asthma or just anxiety?
« on: March 03, 2014, 11:06:30 PM »
This may sound kind of dumb.  I have trouble breathing sometimes and it really freaks me out.  Sometimes I will just be sitting doing nothing and it happens.  Other times it happens after doing something physical and I will wheeze and cough.  However, when I am having trouble breathing I begin to shake and stuff just like I do when I am having a panic attack.  I have been avoiding anything to physical lately cuz I am scared I may have asthma and something bad might happen.  I dont know if this is me just being paranoid or what.  I have always had wheezing and stuff after running or doing something physical.  I just don't know if it really maybe asthma or my mind just tricking me again.

This can happen to a lot of people with anxiety. Not knowing if the breathing issue is something more than anxiety. Simple way to find out would be to be tested. Regular doctor's visit. Don't be surprised if you hear it is just your anxiety. It can confuse people at times. An asthma attack can kill you. I think that is one difference. I am not saying every asthma attack kills people. I have known two people who have died from asthma attacks. I think it would be a little more severe than your basic anxiety attack. But put your mind at ease and get checked out. That way you will know for certain.
