Unhappy sudden breathlesness

Hi ,i am just wondering does anyone else out there have this kind of thing happen, i am driving along feeling ok and all of a sudden i just get this sudden shortness of breath as if someone sucked the breath out of me !! as i carry oxygen i put it on and in a few minutes it all returns to normal ,it never happens in the house so im wondering would it be the movement and the heat of the car? as i had a collapsed lung three months ago and that was while driving and i was sound then suddenely i could not breathe at all hardly and on that occasion i had to have surgery but this resolves itself and might not happen again for days or even weeks/?

Now im 48 i have alpha1 severe emphysema so im used of things going wrong ,but if anyone has any input id be greatfull,thanks.::

Re: sudden breathlesness

Your best answer would be to seek a doctor. I wouldn't put it off.
