I'm hoping someone could give me some help or shed some light.
Last year I was diagnosed as having anxiety and shortly afterwards I was diagnosed with having asthma due to being tight chested and not being able to breathe right. However I'm not 100% convinced it's anxiety and even though I've been prescribed inhalers I don't use them - partly because I'm worried it's not asthma and also when I did use it previously my heart raced and I felt shaky (not sure if it's because I was scared about taking it)
I have been back and forth to the drs and to see the asthma nurse, who has now referred me to see a respiratory therapist.
What my question is is how can/do people know if the tight chest and not being able to exhale is a sign of anxiety or asthma?
I am really struggling with the 2 and as a consequence I get all panicky.
Is anyone able to help?
