Shortness of breath comes and goes
« on: September 01, 2014, 11:48:55 AM »
For the most part, my day to day anxiety had subsided.  I have long stretches of time where I feel great (like weeks at a time, not just hours) and I am able to shrug off many familiar symptoms even if something does arise.

Four years ago I began to have episodes of shortness of breath. They freaked me out for quite a while but after a chest X-ray, lung function test, and this website, I was soon able to work my way through the fear because I knew it was just anxiety. However, in the last six months or so, things have gotten worse. These episodes occur much more frequently and are more severe. I am never noticeably anxious (in fact, sometimes I'm havering a really fabulous time somewhere) and I haven't been able to write it off as anxiety because it legitimately feels like something is wrong.

So i have "diagnosed" myself with one of the following:


Lung cancer

Blood clots

Adult asthma

From my research, these are not out of the realm of possibility. So, have any if you experienced SOB that comes and goes?
