How long have you had Shortness of Breath
« on: June 16, 2014, 06:45:17 AM »
I've been experiencing, on and off, shortness of breath and awareness of my breathing. This has been going on for 3-4 months. My doctor thinks it's allergies/asthma and gave me an inhaler...I don't feel that the inhaler works and I'm convinced that it's lung cancer because of soe leg pain and tingling. I know it's not a clot because I have a clear chest xray and 2 negative d dimers in December. I use to have asthma but it went away for years and now I feel like it's back with a vengeance....my husband thinks it's all anxiety...

So my question is, how long have you had Shortness of breath or hyper awareness of breathing?

I have the same things as you actually.... the SOB but I am not sure if its that or more aware of my breathing.... sometimes it feels like the air that I breat is not satisfying.... if I think about my breath going up the steps I feel like I am getting SOB.... but when I go up the steps and I think about something then later I realized I didn't get SOB.... I am constantly thinking of my breath which makes it worse....
I also have tingling in my feet and hands.... I don't think I have lung cancer... didn't even occur to me... I don't fear it. If you had a chest x-ray and your doctor told you you are ok, well then you are ok. It's all anxiety!!!!!!

Good luck!c :action-smiley-065:

Thanks for the input! It jut annoys me, I wish I knew what this was Exectly! I feel like 4 months of this is scary....I hate the not knowing! Yes I had some clear things but all I read about is people being diagnosed with anxiety and it's lung cancer. I know that I should just suck it up and listen to my doctor but it's just so scary. And this shortness of breath has me confinced I'm dying

Oh my goodness, story of my life. I get it all the time, and when I do get get it it lasts for days! I also have asthmas, so its very difficult to tell the difference between anxiety sob and asthma. It also occurs more when my anxiety/stress level is elevated, then I become more aware of the symptom. Ughhh I feel your pain. But try some breathing techniques, and keep up with your asthma and allergy meds to tackle both. Goof luck!
