Dan, better to see a psychiatrist who, being also a medical doctor, can assess your panic disorder AND the asthma. Panic attacks often make a person feel some discomfort or difficulty in breathing, rather than an asthma attack as such ; but if you do have asthma, already properly diagnosed, then a panic attack could indeed complicate it. Physical exercise does help some people deal with feeling s of anxiety and panic. If you actually have asthma, some people unfortunately have a variety of asthma which can be worsened by physical exertion. SO you'd need a good medical and psychiatric checkup to be properly sure about this.
