Hi, ive posted here quite a bit...but my anxiety has started to calm down...ive acquired allergies I guess? The last couple years and im having sum issues with what im feeling....maybe you guys can help or put my mind at rest at least so I dont panic. Ive had more problems with chest colds and sinus allergy attacks that go to my chest more than ever this last year...I take Zyrtec daily and if i forget a couple days I usually wind up coughing or sneezing. ...im active, 32 yr old female...I do smoke...
So my new problem started last week...I acquired a stomach bug...had supper bad diarrhea (sorry tmi)...not real sure if its a bug or my Gerd or Ibs acting up. I started feeling like something was in my throat amd feeling short of breath...and tried not to panic...didnt know if it was allergy related or from the stomach upset because when my gerd is bad the acid in my throat wil give me the sensation of being short of breath..chest burns, etc...I came home from work a couple days later still feeling like I couldnt get a good breath...and oddly on the left side....took a deep breath amd u could hear a wheeze? THAT freaked me out
So the next morning I wake up hoping its better and it feels like something is stuck in my left broncial tube? Thats the only way I can describe it...if I cough sometimes it feels like a rattly feeling with lil bits of phylm? And if im sitting it still feels heavy and weird in there....im noticing when I do get a productive cough it has a slight taste? But its only in one side...nothing ive every experienced before......I told my husband and he thinks im too worried and should just let it pass but....after a week its scarying me....idk what it is...from the gerd? Or allergies? When I felt shortnof brwath and my thrpat felt weird itd feel better when I ate......like now when I breathe in its sore around my ribs...just very weird
Any advice is appreciated.
