Possible stridor..: If there is a high-pitched sound when you inhale, this could be stridor which is caused by a narrowing of the upper airway. You need to see a doctor asap; if you are short of breath, go to the er. If this is stridor, it could lead to upper airway obstruction, which can be life-threatening. Get to a doctor today for evaluation and treatment!
