Doctor can evaluate: A college-aged person who has "difficult breathing" (which may mean different things to different people) can write down his daily symptoms on a big calendar, and get checked by his primary care doctor. A pulmonologist or gastroenterologist can help if needed. Importantly, if there are worrisome symptoms like a foreign object stuck somewhere, or increasing obstruction, that would be an Emergency.
