Whenever I get stressed, I feel like I have an asthma attack. It doesn’t feel like a panic attack. Is this related to the adrenals?


Q: Whenever I get stressed, I feel like I have an asthma attack. It doesn’t feel like a panic attack. Is this related to the adrenals?

A: Having stress can cause the adrenalines to surge and cause the whole body to gear up, constricting vessels to increase the heart rate, breathing, gearing the body to run and escape. So your breathing will become more rapid in frequency, though not quite to the stage of hyperventilating. The adrenal breathing exercise and restorative exercises are excellent in such cases.
