Blue inhaler stopped an 'asthma' attack but my pharmacist says bronchiospasms can be caused by stress without having asthma. Is this true?

Maybe: Extreme stress and anxiety can make u wheeze. However, have urself checked out by a physician to make sure what could be the problem. Allergies are a trigger of asthma and I notice u have been using Flonase. Asthma can start at any age and the key to diagnosis is RECURRENCE. By going to a lung specialist you can have lung studies which can make things clearer.
