A 51-year-old male asked:

I have issues breathing. symptoms started over a year ago. i'm unable to take it in full breaths. i have been to a cardiologist and a lung doc and all seems to be in order. i noticed moving my head and flexing my neck seems to let more air?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!
