I know that anxiety causes physical symptoms that seem very real when you're experiencing them but then turn out to be just anxiety. But how do you know what is anxiety and what is not? For example, I have been having seasonal allergies (mainly spring) since 2016 (never had them before). I went to an allergist and he said that I'm on the cusp of being considered asthmatic. So when I have trouble breathing I'm not sure if it's allergies or anxiety. Once I start to think about the trouble breathing my anxiety takes over. I have never had an asthma attack and am thinking it's just anxiety but wondered if there's a way to be sure.
Any advice? I can go back to the allergist and do more testing I guess but wanted to save the visit if possible. Thanks!!
