I am 24 years old now and was diagnosed with asthma for the first time when I was 10 years old. Then, I was put on inhalers. Also, I was on albuterol for quite some time without much desired effect but all these while I never had a severe attack. Just some mild boughs of cough for some time and then it would subside on its own. It occurs like once or twice a year for about 2 to 3 months and the periods of September to December and from April to June was mostly the time of the year that I had those breathing troubles. Eating, drinking alcohol and caffeine has always made my problem worse. But in the recent years, I had been having some serious attacks landing me right in the ER for as many as three times as of now but the doctors always say that my lung is quite okay and I don’t have asthma. According to them, the whole problem is due to anxiety and panic. It’s like whenever I feel that I am not breathing properly, I get all hyped up causing hyperventilation. Not satisfied with it, I went to a pulmonogist and got all the tests done on me like the breathing test, upper GI, methacholine challenge and etc. and amazingly it came out okay. Every time I have breathing problems, I feel as if I am short of breath and try to get a full one by forcing myself to yawn or cough. Inhalers won’t be effective and then my chest will hurt and I would be thrown into a state of panic. It’s not something that I fancy being in and I don’t have any clue what’s causing it which makes me worry a lot. Please if anybody have any information that might help me out then please drop in.
