No matter how much i practice chest breathing, it still feels more natural than abdomen breathing?
Good for you: Life is difficult enough without people telling you that there is a "good" and a "bad" way to breathe. It's subscience. You'll inflate your lungs adequately no matter what muscles you choose to use -- take a few deep breaths. If you are interested in physical yoga, get with somebody who's evidence-based. This might be a great way to get into a fitness-focused lifestyle -- without superstition. ...Read more

My dr I suspicious to endometriosis in me because of recurrent abdomen pain and nausea. Now I m experiencing a bad chest pain when I'm breathing.28f?
Due to Anxiety, improper breathing is causing chest discomfort and buzzing pains in chest and stomach. Any medication to ease symptoms n avoid attack?
Lots of meds:
address this, but for those you'll need a psychiatrist. The usual ones are SSRI's or SSNRI's, and there's a long list. Have you also considered the CAUSE of your anxiety? Meds will help cope in the short run but won't address the underlying dynamics, other than adding a little confidence with symptom reduction. Here's a reference:

I would advise seeing the ED, from your description the baby is breathing fast and using muscles not usually used in normal breathing patterns. The baby may need to have antibiotics, lab testing and another oxygen saturation test. Assessment will be made at that time for bronchiolitis, pneumonia and sepsis.
We can follow up once you have been in the ED. ...Read more

Why is my 3yr old gasping in her sleep? She seems nasally congested every night and coughs every night but doesn't have a cold. Her breathing is very labored her stomach and chest are going in and out but the breath is not going in or coming out. She does
It sounds as though she may be suffering from sleep apnea - not an uncommon problem for children her age. Unlike adults, sleep apnea in healthy children is most often caused by enlarged tonsils or adenoids, though there can be other causes, too. The enlarged tissue can be from an underlying infection, allergies, or just age-related. You should give her doctor a call and let them know what is going on with her. They may refer her to an ear, nose and throat doctor for a more thorough evaluation and treatment of the problem.
If sleep apnea goes untreated in kids, it can cause them to have difficulty sleeping which in turn can cause behavioral problems, difficulty learning, headaches and fatigue. Give her doc a call. Good luck! ...Read more
