Many of the answers below could atlcauly WORSEN your asthma, such as a humidifier, if your asthma is triggered by HUMIDITY, which many people have! Don't try these until you find out what your triggers are!For the time being, until you get yourself to a GOOD PULMONOLOGIST, try exhaling as completely as you can. This expels the stale air, with little or no oxygen in it. It may seem weird, to blow air OUT, since your instinct is to gulp it in but it does work (I have asthma and have used this, w/success).Then, inhale, slowly and steadily, trying to calm yourself while doing so. The best prevention for asthma is to avoid things that trigger it, but it may not be possible in all cases. The next best thing is to get a full evaluation, with your primary care doctor and a specialist. There are many PREVENTIVE meds (including inhalers) that can reduce your need for a rescue inhaler drastically!Some preventive meds, are steroidal, like Azmacort , and others are non-steroidal, but reduce inflammation or even prevent it, such as Intal . You can even take a drug like Accolate , by mouth, to reduce the frequency of attacks. Most docs WILL, however, recommend a Rescue (albuterol) inhaler, for sudden attacks.See a doctor ASAP, since asthma attacks CAN be fatal if not treated immediately! I know two people who died from it, with very little warning. You really can't play around with this, such as trying to use mind control or herbal meds. Check out the site below, for useful info about the disease and treatment options.Good luck!
