Yesterday I ended up having a asthma attack and panic

Yesterday I ended up having a asthma attack and panic attack at the same time, i was struggling to breathe, hyperventilating, headache, fatigue, dizziness, could barely move due to weakness. Went to gp and got nebulizer and it did heaps, waited 10mins and I went downhill again, chest hurt so they gave me 4 puffs of inhaler. At this point I was becoming less and less responsive, couldn't keep my eyes open and became quite weak.they gave me another nebulizer to try and clear back up. Got so bad I was in and out of conciousness so went to emergency via ambulance. When I got there I did all sorts of tests and was still quite hard to talk to. They said I have a respiratory infection which doesn't go well with asthma. After 5 hours of being at home I had to go back to emergency due to hyperventilating and couldn't breathe, couldn't get it back to normal, shakes, tingles, headache, weakness, I was in and out of conciousness again and non responsive. At one stage I fell asleep and when I woke up I thought I was at home.
They sent me home after telling me it was anxiety.
Is it all matching up because none of this is making sense to me

Hello I have just found out I had mild asthma a couple of weeks ago I have done my breathing treatment and everything seemed fine until today I had a mini attack... Why? I also remember my doctor saying that I need to cut back on caffeine since I have asthma because of the medicine that I am taking and yesterday I had a soda could that have been the reason why I had the attack.

having an asthma attack for 2 days now and it subsides then comes back. Used albuterol inhaler with no benefit. Did two vials of albuterol sulfate in nebulizer yesterday and had some relief. I did one about 30 min ago and no real relief. Do not know if safe to do another.. Also have Ipratropium for nebulizer - do not know if I should use or not. I also take an anti inflammatory for arthritis - Maloxicam - and had not taken it I took it and it seemed all symptoms vanished in about 30 min. But have com back today and have already used max dosage of malaxicam. also using chest decongestant dextrometorphan + guaifenesin on e every six hrs - usually helps but not too much today - do not know if Okay to take closer than six hr interval.
