I think that my case is a peculiar and singular one. In the past one year, I have found that I was struck by a couple of asthma spells. I would be overwhelmed by a sudden spate of breathlessness whenever I am involved in an emotionally charged situation. An instance of this would be the two times when I entered into an argument and when I was struck down by an attack. I was of the impression that the asthma attacks triggered by emotions would happen only in people’s minds. It is only when I consulted a pulmonologist recently that I came to know that the attack can be real and that it can happen to genuine asthmatics. The doctor also advises me to stay calm and cool and I now have an advantage over my husband in case an argument erupts between us! I would like to know if this has happened to anyone else before.
