I have been very stressed my grandma just pasted away and I am a bundle of nerves. Well for the past week or so I have been having the need all day to take deep breaths and yawn I have been known to have this for the past few years but its gotten worse now. I felt like I just could not get a good enough breath. Now for the past few days I cant stop wheezing but its only when I take a deep breath inhaling not exhaling. Then I keep trying to cough what ever it is up and my chest is starting to hurt. My throat and lungs feel very irratated could this be because of all the breathing I have been doing or am I sick? I had asthma as a child so I fear that. Dont want to have that again. please help I might go to the er to get checked but I really dont have the money to do that and I dont have a doctor. I am living in a new state and having trouble finding a job so I dont have health insuranse. Please help!!!!
I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandma,,,I lost mine 8 years ago and it's still tough at times.
If I were you,,,I'd get your condition checked out before you get worse. It will be cheaper in the long run to get it checked before it gets real bad??
Sure hope you're feeling a little better
Sorry to hear about your loss.
I think it's possible you could be having a sort of a panic attack. With asthma the wheeze is normally on exhalation not inhalation. However, with any breathing problem it is important to get it checked out. Do you have a peak flow meter at home? If you did you could check your peak flow and check it against the recommended value for your age/gender/height which you could find on an internet search.
I think a trip to the Dr is a good idea, to help you deal with the problem, what ever is causing it. And if it is asthma then it is better to be safe than sorry, a quick trip to ER now maybe cheaper than a long stay in hospital if it gets worse.
Hope you feel better soon
Wheezing when inhaling is called stridor.. usually pretty serious, like blue said, might be best to check at the ER or if you have a convenient care for non emergencies, try there.
You may be experiencing an asthma attack thats stress induced. see a doctor I really think you should to distinguish what it's from b/c you never know it could be serious or it could be nothing but your going to keep worrying until you know!
