Can an inhaler help with panic attacks if I don’t have asthma? Mine make it hard to breathe, my chest hurts, and I hyperventilate.

      No an inhaler won't help with your panic attacks, chances are they will make them worse. It's all about controlling your breathing, in for 4 seconds through your nose, hold for 4 seconds then slowly for 4 seconds out your mouth. Put green noise on while you do this and you will get to control your panic attacks.

      So, it could I suppose, but when u have a panic attack, use a paper bag. Your body can't panic if it doesn't have the oxygen to do so. And I've been there. You can also do the 5 senses when counting backwards. What's 5 things you can see, 4 things you can hear, 3 things you can smell, two can taste, and 1 you can touch. It helps to center your focus on the things you can control
