Yes: Postoperative surgical site pains can make deep breathing uncomfortable. Pancreatitis can also take days or weeks to resolve, and cause pains as well. Eat light non-fat foods and drink plenty of liquids. Walk as much as possible. Use the pain medication as prescribed. Contact your surgeon if you get fevers or cough with a lot of yellow phlegm.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Does difficulty breathing mean I am having a panic attack?

Dr. Jeffrey Gladd

No: More commonly it is a product of baby pushing up on the diaphragm. This leads to an inability to expand the lungs completely and may cause shortness of breath. Being short of breath may lead to panic attacks, but you can head this off by sitting or lying down and taking several slow, deep, intentional breaths.

Maybe-call for help!: Your child could be having an allergic reaction if the symptoms are immediate. If your child is laboring to breathe, has dusky/blue lips, or flaring of the nostrils, your baby must be evaluated immediately. If the breathing problem is not severe, it is still best to call your doctor as the problem could be anything from a bad cold to asthma, an aspirated foreign object, or a lung infection.

He should be seen : Croup is a viral illness that causes swelling in the baby's upper airway- near your baby's larynx (voicebox). Your baby may be hoarse. When it is severe, the swelling may block off airflow into your baby's lungs and cause problems with getting oxygen into the body. This can become a life-threatening senario in the youngest infants. Best to call your doctor, or if breathing is severe, go to the er.
