Does an increase in heart rate and trouble getting a deep breath be asthma? I was told that I have not real asthma. Can dizziness occur as well? Thank you. In other words is this similar to an asthma attack?
It sounds like you`re asking for a specific diagnosis, which is more than I can provide online. Only a detailed history and physical exam by a healthcare professional can provide enough information to make a specific diagnosis. Please discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider.
