Feeling somewhat short of breath. Blood clot?
« on: January 06, 2014, 09:22:25 PM »
After working out yesterday and many times before when I've had panic attacks I get this shortness of breath. Like not gasping or wheezing, just feel like I don't have enough air. I'm currently on a event monitor to rule out heart issues.. Could be a clot or somethig. What kind of symptoms does that present. Too scared and trying to to google

i often get that feeling, could just be a spastic diaghragm or more likely GERD/reflux. Gaviscon helps as needed. Also, if it is after working it, could be electrolyte imbalance. Make sure you are getting enough potassium and sodium. I notice when i eat a lot of protein it is worse. My theory is meat and protein is heavy on the stomach, when the stomach fills up, it puts more pressure on the nerves and veins and diaghragm, like a vasovagal response or something, especially after working out. Coconut water is good and has more potassium than a banana, and doesn't taste too bad when it is chilled. It is a really annoying feeling but its not gonna kill you or cause any harm... but for me increasing sodium helps. You should tell your doc and have CBC, CMP checked and if that's normal make sure you are getting enough calories for what your metabolism requires and make sure you are getting enough electrolytes as well. Good luck!

My doctor told me that when you are anxious, you don't breath properly and this can cause the
symptoms you are having.

Anxiety gives me the 'shortness of breath' feeling all the time. In the field I have seen blood clots before and the person was in a great deal of pain. And when they couldn't breathe, it meant that we were breathing for them with a bag valve mask. I'm sure you are fine, talk to your doc if it gets any worse.
