In brief: Asthma symptoms

If asthma is not controlled and you continue to have difficulty breathing, it is a yes.
Not able to breath well can cause anxiety, heart race or panic attack, and headache. Most of the time asthma is related to environmental allergies in the us. Having one allergic disease give to a risk of getting another one including food allergy. Chocolate, tea, coffee contain caffeine ; can cause headache.

In brief: Yes, I think so

Especially a bad asthma attack can bring on tension, anxiety - even panic.
Encumbered breathing can be life-threatening. Allergic reactions can indeed bring on either or both headache and asthma. Chocolate contains substances that can constrict blood vessels which can cause headache and can cause acid reflux that may trigger asthma. So, yes - these make sense. Avoid it and see how it goes. Best!
