Inflammation!!: Although an emotional reaction can precipitate bronchospasm, asthma is caused by a chronic inflammation of the airways. This is possibly due to allergy but there are other causes. Increases in inflammation can cause the release of inflammatory mediators that result in bronchospasm with cough, wheeze and shortness of breath.See 1 more doctor answer

It depends: You need to discuss this with your health care provider. It depends upon the severity of your asthma and what medications you are taking. The standard treatment for persistent asthma is an inhaled steroid used daily with a bronchodilator as a rescue inhaler.

Asthma attack: You're probably talking about an asthma attack caused by aspiration. This means inhaling something that should have been swallowed like food or stomach contents. This could set off an asthma attack. Aspiration can happen with people with swallowing difficulties such as with a stroke or when someone is intoxicated.See 1 more doctor answer
