Dizzy AttackHere is advice:
  • No, you can feel very dizzy whilst having an Asthma attack obviously due to the restricted oxygen supply tothe brain, however unless there is a severe wheeze, accompanied by extreme discomfort and or a severe persistant struggling cough, then it is not an asthma attack. i personally suffered with childhood asthma and so i know the signs and then i used to worry about asthma as an adult, however i have now developed panic attacks which one of the main symptoms is dizziness and these were brought on through worrying about asthma! so take a break and think whether or not you could be having a mild panic attack . they are not the same thing!!!!
  • With asthma you would notice a hard time moving air out of your lungs. In some cases some wheezing and or coughing. Prolonged you can become hypoxic and therefor become dizzy. If on the other hand you are just getting dizzy with no breathing stress its most likely something very different. If you are breathing fast and deeply feeling like you cant get a full breath, maybe your heart pounding then get dizzy you are probobly suffering an anxiety attack and the light headedness is probobly from breating too much. Either way if you have a reaccuring problem you need to see a medical professional to rule out anything serious. or to ease your mind finding it is something very minor.

i have had asthma my whole life i used to get really dizzy after having my inhaler , i went to see my gp and he switched my medication now i dont have them that often than before :)
