Can't breathe :(

Lately I've been having a lot of trouble breathing. When I was younger, it was suspected that I might have mild asthma, but I was never officially diagnosed or anything. Now though, my chest feels extremely tight and I've been having trouble breathing. I constantly feel the need to yawn or cough just so I can get more air in.

Does this sound like asthma?

I'm planning on going to the health center at my school tomorrow and seeing what they say and what they can do, and depending on what happens, I may or may not see my regular doctor at home when I go home for the long weekend.

Re: Can't breathe :(

Yes, those are possible asthma symptoms. I'd see a pulmonologist for a full work up.
