> I know 2 people who switched from methadone to bupe who ended up in hospital with asthma attacks

That is very interesting.

I left out of my posts that Friday & Saturday I had experimented going by increasing my dose from 3 mg/day to 5 mg/day. Then back to 3 mg Sunday. Then the breathing problem was Sunday night.

ALSO: Because of my depression, my house has not been cleaned in years. It is an asthmatic horror with all the dust!

But the doc said the trouble I described just didn't fit asthma. He said my problem was not environmentally triggered and my O2 levels were fine. I didn't 100% understand his confidence, but he pretty much ruled out asthma. Also, I have had no problem quickly filling my lungs even when very panicked, if that matters. But as you say, asthma comes in many shapes & sizes.

> If you had some Ventolin handy when it was happening..........

I was hoping the doc would just give me an inhaler to try. What could it have hurt? Maybe I can borrow one.

With asthma in mind, yesterday morning (before the doc visit) I also washed all my bed linens, blankets, & pillows, started cleaning my room, and changed the furnace filter.

I'm thinking now that my problem is anxiety-related, but I'm not ruling anything out.

My dusty house may be putting my breathing right on the edge of asthma-like irritation. Maybe that's why *breathing* and not, say, chest pain, is where my anxiety is expressed? THAT makes a lot of sense to me.
