Please help me. I'm desperate! I don't wanna die :(

Excessive mucus in throat/airways/chest, drowning sensation, extreme pressure and heaviness in my stomach pushing up on my sternum, making it hard to breathe, indent below sternum, swollen sternum, mouth sores, swollen jaw and swollen lymph nodes,very difficult to breathe, chest pain/tightness, back heaviness, sore throat, runny nose, difficulty swallowing, hyperventilation, numbness on lips, post-nasal drip, fever, chills, frequent urination, constipation and just extreme disconnectedness with my breathing, excessive saliva/spitting up water-like saliva.

Chest X-ray was clear apparently. The mucus in all in my airways. When i take medicine to cough it up, i gag
Blood work was clear.
Urine sample was ok.
2 EKGS were both fine.

I was thinking maybe it's digestive. My stomach makes this weird rumbling noise when I breathe in. It's very tight.

Been back and forth to hospitals because I have episodes where I basically can't breathe at all. We've got nothing and we have no insurance. They won't admit me anyway.

I don't smoke. Not near people who smoke. No history of anything and it is NOT anxiety. Believe me. This has been going on for weeks and its so awful and scary.

This might be a day late and a dollar short, but your symptoms sound like you have GERD, which stands for gastro-esophageal reflux disease. Find a forum or search the net to look further into it. Good luck!

Well mucus production can be from many things from sinus infections or chest infections. You could of cause ask your doctor about bronchiectasis.

To have all these symptoms you have really needs proper investigation but i agree that you should also concider the above posters advice to
We think too much but feel to little. Dictators free themselves but enslave the people. A free mind cannot be enslaved.
