A 19-year-old female asked:

I was having caffeine every day for years and when i quit cold turkey two months ago i started having breathing problems (breath fine but something on my chest at times). is this related to asthma? i've had an inhaler a long time ago.

Caffeine intake: What is on the chest? tightness? it is not related to the caffeine withdrawal, if you have history of asthma most likely from asthma, but have yourself checked out to out other possibilities
