Asthma/anxiety : Anxiety triggers asthma and asthma triggers anxiety. Shortness of breath should be evaluated by a doctor urgently. The shortness of breath and chest pain is not stopping you from taking the time to ask such a question online. Are these symptoms related to a physical problem or anxiety-related or both?
