I find it hard to believe that you told a doc about this and was told "it's nothing". Especially the breathing part. She must think you're imagining it.
You might find it hard to believe but it's the truth. The ER doctor told me the breathing was anxiety but it's not. I actually feel some kind of pressure-it's so hard to describe. And I'm not imagining any of the symptoms-that's what's so frustrating about the whole thing. I feel like I am banging my head against a brick wall. No one seems to listen to me.

The physicians assistants I have seen are the one's that don't think it's serious. My pain doctor thinks it is though and so did the ER doctor who referred me to the neurosurgeon.
