Not every time bronchospasm doesn't means asthma. When a person has an asthma attack, a Bronchospasm occurs. Apart from asthma and bronchitis, chronic lung diseases such as emphysema, various respiratory infections, anaphylactic shock, or a person’s allergic reaction to certain chemicals can also cause Bronchospasms. Bronchospasms may also be triggered by certain medicines, a medication used to treat poisoning from ingestion of deadly nightshade, some hypertension drugs, such as Beta Blockers. People who are allergic to insect bites, as well those who have food allergies to eggs, peanuts, milks, nuts, shellfish, soy and wheat products may also experience episodes of Bronchospasms.
