Thank you for a well researched, informative article.

Dear Jamie, Thanks for your valuable comments and compliments.

I have been having breathing problems for years and all the doctors are guessing it's muscles spasms coming from my throat. I have the same symptoms as a heart attack victim but I have had a ekg done when I have one of these attacks and it's not my heart. I noticed this article and several of the things that cause bronchspasm is what sets mine off also, so this could be what I am having and the doctor's don't know about this, which they should being a doctor and all. Aerosol sprays, smoke, stress, and dust, all 4 of the things you mentioned in this article sets it off. Mine first starts in my upper back, which are my lungs and then goes to my chest, real sharp pain, then it goes to my throat where I can barely breath because of all of the pain. When I go to the hospital they used to give me muscle relaxers shots but now I take a drug called Pantoprazole 40mg. which is generic for Protonix. I would be spending more time in the hospitals if I hadn't heard of this drug which I ask my doctor to try me on. I heard about it from another patience that was having similiar problems. I'm so glad I read this article, now my problem may finally have a name to it. I will ask my doctor about it. thanks so much.
