Asthma and Anxiety

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've had asthma my whole entire life and it was all under control for at least 9 years. I've had asthma now for 3-4 years and had that under control as well until around 3 months ago. I'm panicky 24/7, I have multiple anxiety symptoms daily (some days not as severe), etc. I went into the doctor around a month ago for my lungs and they did a test and they told me it was most likely my asthma acting up. I was suppose to go get an inhaler too take 2 times daily but my mom can't afford it. I have an emergency inhaler but it makes me panic because it speeds my heart rate up. Today my whole chest feels tight, heavy, and I'm also having chest pains. Does anyone else suffer from both of these things together and how do they resolve some of the issues they both create? It's like my asthma makes my anxiety 100 times worst lately. rolleyes
