I have had Asthma for almost as long as I can remember. One thing that caused an asthma attack for me was getting really upset. When I was scared, mad, or sad it would trigger an attack for me. On day when fighting with my mom about going to school I had an attack so bad my mom was dialing 911 before I could take a third puff of my inhaler. These attach always hurt my throat badly, that was my first warning that they were coming on. After a quick trip to my doctor and I was diagnosed with vocal cord dysfunction. This is when your vocal cords spasm blocking your airway. You make the same wheezing noise and eventually can pass out due to lack of air. Luckily once you pass out the vocal cords will relax and you will be able to breath again. (I have never passed out) VCD is not very common and there is no way to for a family doctor to easily tell the two apart. I was on a ton of meds for my asthma before I knew I had VCD, now knowing the difference all I need is my inhaler.

So if you get attacks from being upset and it huts your throat you may need talk to your doctor.


Hope all is well
