For 2 years I have difficulty breathing. I have shortness of breath & can't breath through my nose unless im sleeping. Have to bend over & breath deep.

Need ENT/ allergy: And pulmonary consults. If everything has been tested and has come back normal but i would recommend that you get a referral to a tertiary care university center for a more high-level evaluation. I can't tell if your ocd perhaps even plays a role in this. You should have your psychiatrist on board with these consultations. Hopefully with everyone putting their minds together they will be able to come up with a solution to your problem. Best wishes. ...Read more
