Hi there. I had severe to moderate asthma ever since i was a kid and my asthma has been absent and mild during my middle high school years and early college years and as of now my asthma attacks came back again. My ashtma has been really bothering me and seems to be only nebulizer gives me a reflief from wheezing and coughing. I also have pleghm.

Does uncontrollable and unmanageable anxiety and stress can only worsen my asthma? Anyone here had asthma?

Please i could use some reassurances from all of you. Usually i get the asthma attack during mornings and night abd i will not getting any relief if i do not use my nebulizer. I am also taking ventolin.

Hi there! I have allergy induced asthma and my allergies have been HORRIFIC, which in turn makes my asthma pretty severe lately. I'm on cingulair, claritan, neb treatments,rescue inhaler and benedryl when needed. It does trigger my anxiety alot. And the worst part is I smoke (really stupid I know!). I've been trying to cut down to quit soon.

sometimes I can't tell the difference between breathlessness from anxiety and my asthma. So sometimes I end up over using my inhaler. Then obviously I het the shakiness, nervousness, and palpitations from the neb and inhaler which in turn causes more anxiety! Uugghh I know how you feel.
