In a study funded by the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, researchers have found a connection between common asthma symptoms such as waking in the middle of the night & shortness of breath, and increased levels of anxiety and stress in teenagers diagnosed with asthma.

Researchers say the link may help doctors treating young asthma patients instruct their parents in the importance in managing their children’s asthma.  Dr. Cathryn Luria, MD said they found the connection between asthma symptoms and stress & anxiety however said it wasn’t clear which came first, the stress or the asthma symptoms.  Findings of this study were presented at the American Academmy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology’s annual meeting.

More information on the study can be found on the Henry Ford Hospital website here.
