Stress-induced asthma is asthma triggered by stress. Asthma is a chronic lung disease. The airways of people with this condition become inflamed and narrowed. This makes breathing difficult. Several things can trigger an asthma attack, including stress. Read on to learn about the connection between stress and asthma. Symptoms of stress-induced asthma are the same as those of other types of asthma but are triggered by a period of stress.

Symptoms may include:

  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid breathing

Stress-induced asthma can be triggered by anything that causes stress, such as:
