Does stress cause any of you to have asthma attacks? my doctor said that I might be having panic attacks which cause me to cough and go into an asthma attack.

      Quite often I will have a panic or anxiety attack and it will go into an asthma attack . Stress is a major trigger.

      Oh gosh! I brought up with my asthma doctor that I had no idea whether I was having a panic attack or asthma issue. She recommended me to use my peak flow meter to decide whether to use my inhaler or not, and that has helped me chill my anxiety once I realize my breathing is *just fine*. Pretty sure my panic attacks have caused asthma attacks though!
