> Hi - I had an infection induced asthma attack a couple months ago that put me in the hospital. I never knew I had asthma before that. Since then I have been more and more anxious about my breathing and last week I think I had an anxiety induced asthma attack. It wasn't as bad as the first because I was able to get to the doc and get the right rescue meds to control it.

I've heard of execised induced asthma, but not anxiety induced asthma. Is that a term used by MDs, or psychologists, or both?

Thanks
