Asthma Associated with Panic Attacks

Published Online: Tuesday, October 1, 2002   [ Request Print ]

People with respiratory diseases are more likely to suffer from panic attacks, according to data published in the August 2002 issue of Chest. A study of 3032 adults showed that those who reported having asthma, chronic bronchitis, or emphysema were almost twice as likely to have panic attacks, compared with people who do not have these conditions. This association was still found after the researchers adjusted their analysis for demographic characteristics, comorbid mental disorders, and physical comorbidities.
