Re: Anyone else feel like they cannot breathe?
Yes, I am always short of breath, and I have random bouts of not being able to breathe in for several seconds at a time, then I breathe in really quick when I have a second and it goes so quickly and I cannot breathe in again. Like, I am literally not able to breathe in, it is not possible. It's not as scary now as it was when it first started happening, because now I know it won't last for much longer than about 10 minutes. Sometimes it happens daily, but every now and then I will go a week or so without having the problem. It's weird but none of the doctors found anything wrong with me either. It's been happening so long now that I pretty much just go with the flow when it starts happening and I know that I will be okay. The always short of breath thing happens quite frequently as well, but found nothing to do with that either. I haven't tried going off all my medications, however, and, after looking up all possible side affects, they pretty much all COULD cause shortness of breath. Thing is . . . I need those meds! I refuse to go off a couple of them or I would seriously suffer greatly . . .
