: Hi Kissie, this sounds like the problem I had a few years ago. Like a belt or steel band around my chest, making it hard to take a deep breath. It put an end to my running and made me short of breath every time I would exercise. About one year later I had a root canal removed that had gone bad. Shortly after the tightness in my chest went away and I returned to normal breathing. The next visit to the dentist I told him about this and he said another patient had the exact same experience only he described it as a weight on his chest. It also went away about one month after his root canal was removed. Weird huh ? Just a thought.
If you have had any root canals check it out. If not, good luck any way. Slagpot.
