Yes you can. The adrenaline rush can bring on an Asthma attack if you are prone to asthma and not taking your meds properly. My sister had her first asthma attack at 34 when under a great deal of stress, and she had to be hospitalised it was so severe.

What are intrinsic asthma and extrinsic asthma?

instric asthma is when you dont need an inhaler exinstric asthma is when you do need an inhaler Traditionally, doctors have divided asthma into two general categories, Extrinsic (allergic) asthma and Intrinsic (non-allergic) asthma, depending upon the types of stimuli that trigger attacks. Extrinsic asthma is caused by an immune system response to inhaled allergens such as pollen, animal dander or dust mite particles. An allergen (or an antigen) is a foreign particle that enters the body. The immune system over-reacts to these often harmless items, forming antibodies, which are normally used to attack viruses or bacteria. Intrinsic asthma is not allergy-related and is caused by anything except an allergy. It may be caused by inhalation of chemicals such as cigarette smoke or cleaning agents, taking aspirin, a chest infection, stress, laughter, exercise, cold air, food preservatives or a myriad of other factors. The terms intrinsic and extrinsic asthma have now been replaced by terms related to the asthma trigger, since the inflammatory response of the airways is the same independent of the cause of the asthma. What was known as extrinsic asthma is now called allergic asthma, while asthma triggered by non-allergic factors, formerly called intrinsic asthma, is separated into such categories as exercise-induced asthma and occupational (chemical- induced) asthma. Inhalers may be prescribed for both allergic asthma (extrinsic) and non-allergic asthma (intrinsic).

How to treat an asthma attack without an inhaler?

Depending on how bad your asthma is, it may take different strategies to help treat it. Sit the person up. Do NOT put pressure on their chest. Asthma attacks make the person breathe faster and harder because they are not getting enough air. This is caused by the swelling of the bronchi oles in the lungs. Get the person to relax and slow their breathing. DON'T LET THEM LIE DOWN!!! It's easier for someone who's having an asthma attack to breathe if they are sitting up and slightly forward. If the attack does not improve (you will be able to tell; they will cough/wheeze less and breath more normally), then take them to the hospital. If you don't have a car or feel that you are unable to do so, THEN CALL 911 (or whatever your equivalent is). The medics will be able to treat them and keep them breathing on the way to the hospital.

How does asthma affect adolescents physically emotionally and socially?

Hi there, Phsycally Asthma effects adolescents in the sense that their much more prone to viral infections and chest infections that someone who does not have Asthma. Also on the allergy side of things, Asthma can "flare up" and cause uncontrolled Asthma which will make the individual feel very weak, lethargic and exhausted. Especially after a Athma attack or a chest infection. Emotionally, uncontrollable Asthma can be difficult to "deal with" and to understand. It can upset some people more than others when they've just been diagnosed as Asthmatic, especially if they have a family history of severe Asthma or complications caused by Asthma. But in the long run, Asthma rarely causes any long term emotional effects. Socially, some young people are embarassed to take their inhalers or medication in public or in front of friends. This is quite common but is nothing to be ashamed or embarassed about as Asthma is a very common condition. If you have Asthma, its always a good idea to inform your friends incase you have a Asthma attack while in their company and explain to them what they need to do just incase you have a bad Asthma day. But in the long run, well controlled Asthma rarely causes any problems.
