ohhhh the breathlessness...
« on: May 17, 2014, 02:00:19 PM »
I've posted about this a couple of times. The "can't get a deep breath feeling" I yawn constantly and find myself trying to take in deep breaths alot. This has been constant for 4 days now. I smoke and have asthma (stupid I know but I'm cutting down).

I went to the Dr yesterday, he said my lungs sound great, my oxygen was %98 and all vitals were normal. I also had a chest/lung xray a month ago that was clear.

does anyone get this CONSTANTLY ...and do you think the drs are missing something?

I used to get this alllllll the time.  Always sure I was about to die, but clearly, I never did!  It's anxiety; your doctors have done all reasonable testing just in case.  There's nothing hiding there - the tests would've shown something.

I have the shortness of breathe most of the days. I keep hoping it will just go away and since it doesn't I also think there's a medical condition. Like you I have seen doctors and gotten tons of works ups and nothing. The only explanation is it's all in my mind. Now the hard part is getting myself to believe it.

My shrink told me the key is believing, I can tell myself stuff all day but if I don't believe in it it will not help.

Somedays are extremely difficult and somedays only parts of the day are really bad. I'd give anything to feel normal again.

I know this post is a couple days old but I figured I would reply since I'm going through a attack right now. I've had shortness of breath all day for almost 3 years or so, some days are worse than others. I've been checked by lung doctors and heart doctors and everything else. I just wish it would go away.
