Could I hve Asthma?

I am 35, and smoke. However I am trying 2 quit.
My symptoms are just where my stomach open is, under my ribs I get a tighten there and find i cant take a deep breath, The tighten can last hours.

Also I find this starts after i have had long conversations. But it can start even if i have been resting on the sofa.

My main problem is, when i get the feeling i cant take the deep breath, and sometimes have to make myself yawn to get it.

Re: Could I hve Asthma?

My suggestion is that you stop guessing and get to the doctors. It could be something
entirely different. A good internist can probably advise you what is needed. The
earlier you catch and treat something, the better your chances for recovery. Please,
take care of yourself. If you don't have coverage, go to a clinic or ER when it's

Re: Could I hve Asthma?

its very possible it is. I too am a smoker and was diagnosed with year. At first thought it was anxiety but after experiencing dizziness also with the breathless and not be able to breath i knew it was someone else.
