Could Eating Sushi Cause An Asthma Attack
Certainly possible: Some people's asthma is triggered by allergens in the air. While you may not be allergic to the hamster itself, you may be allergic to the material in its bedding. Monitor your symptoms and see when they are worse. If it's only when cleaning the cage, you may be able to where a simple mask or try changing the bedding material. If it's bad all the time though, may want to find him a new home. ...Read more
I've been told that CS gas can cause an asthma attack to somebody with mild asthma. How severe would this attack be? Would it be full blown needing a hospital or just wheezing and shortness of breath? I've gotten a 76% on my asthma test.
Please answer! What may be the cause of my boyfriend having a hard time breathing to the point of an asthma attack?
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. ...Read more
Many triggers: Asthma starts with inflammation of the airways. That inflammation can be triggered by many exposures, such as allergies, infections, and weather changes. Irritants like cigarette smoke and dust can also start an asthma attack. Exercise for many people can also cause symptoms. In the last few years, acid reflux has been recognized as a cause for asthma. Avoiding & controlling these prevents attacks. ...Read more
Usually none: In otherwise young healthy individuals (no heart disease) the increased heart rate that can occur during an asthma attack or be related to treating an asthma attack (albuterol inhaler), will resolve on its own and not lead to heart problems. If the heartbeat, is irregular (skipping beats), associated with palpitations or greater than 180 beats per minutes, a heart doctor should be involved. ...Read more
4 yr old has asthma. Was exposed to smoke & couldn't quit coughing. She coughed up blood. Wat causes the blood? Is that considered an asthma attack?
Can certain foods cause a full-blown asthma attack; not, however an Ige-mediated reaction. Mostly just shortness of breath that is asthma-like?
Unlikely: This would be unlikely unless there is some type of aspiration event. When there is aspiration of liquid food we have a reflex to shut off the upper airway. This usually results in difficulty breathing in, coughing, talking and respiratory distress. It would not last as long as a typical asthma attach. Acid reflux can give a sensation of shortness of breath ...Read more
My child has one asthma attack caused by allergy and she will be received a vaccine for it. Can this vaccine kill asthma for ever?
Confusing question: There exists no vaccine for an allergy that I know of, although allergy shots sometimes help with the allergy. Although chest tightening and wheezing during a severe allergy event, the injection is adrenalin, not a vaccine. Families carry the drug with them for future attacks in this situation. Not all that wheezes is asthma, especially in kids. I would try to clarify what went on. This is confusing ...Read more

Cn asthma attack cause vomitting? I also hv severe diarrhea frm 2 mnths. Bt my diarrhea is bettr my doc gav me antidepressant. I cnt keep nythng down.
My husband is having a moderate asthma attack. It was caused by a toilet deodorizer. Can I give him benadryl (diphenhydramine)? He also had a fever and nose is stuffed.
Moderate?: Difficult decision. Mild would be easy - so would severe. It should be okay to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) unless he has a hx of bad reaction to it. But, if there is any doubt - see a doctor. A bad asthma attack can be hard to treat and is good to avoid. It sounds like he doesn't have meds on hand. For the future, an inhaler might be good to have on hand. Hope it goes well. ...Read more
Not directly: Anorexia nervosa has not been associated with causing or inciting asthma attacks, but certainly a patient suffering from both is vulnerable to the consequences of asthma. Late stage anorexia often results in arrhythmias, dilated cardiomyopathy, and etc, making death from an asthma attack more likely. Further, I doubt an anorexic would take Prednisone willingly, again worsening risk. ...Read more

They may assist the breathing of the patient as well, depending on how severely ill he/she is on arrival. Then transport patient to er. ...Read more

Not really: If you are having symptoms due to an asthma flare up, the best strategy would be to use a rescue inhaler/nebulization treatment such as albuterol for quick relief of symptoms. If you continue to have frequent symptoms that recur more than 2 times per week or have frequent night-time symptoms, then you may also require a daily controller medication such as inhaled steroids as well. Talk to your doc. ...Read more
