Weird question

Has anyone else experienced an attack being brought on by listening to people talking about asthma/allergies?

Was having some training about anaphylaxis today, and towards the end started feeling crackly and coughing - not severe though was sorted out with ventolin. Just thought it was odd that I'd been fine all day and then started getting symptoms as we were talking about allergies.

Hi spooky,

Not had this but if I talk for a prolonged period, especially if I laugh q few times too, this will make me have asthma symptoms so maybe it was chatting?



Thanks for reply, I have had that too, but I was just listening to a nurse talking about allergies, not talking myself.


when ever i go to the office for training my chest gets tight. i think its down to the office environment being stuffy and the air conditioning being dry which sets me off coughing


spooky, I wondered the same thing last year after discussing asthma with a friend who used to suffer from it, I had been fine until then, it made me wonder just how powerful is the mind?


I do know if I watch a film and someone can't breathe neither can I lol

I forgot my inhaler last wk and went food shopping, my daughter mentioned breathing and I panicked and couldnt breathe
