Minor, not constant discomfort in chest and neck; yawning to catch breath/short of breath; tired; irregular pulse at times; anxiety. Angina?

Minor, not constant  discomfort in chest and neck; yawning to catch breath/short of breath; tired; irregular pulse at times; anxiety. Angina?

First, an exam: Just to reassure yourself and anyone who cares about you, have a good physical exam w/ emphasis on the concerns you mention. It may even involve some lab work to get levels of thyroid, etc. With the results, you'll be able to address issues or consider psychotherapy to learn skills to deal w/ anxiety. I'd do that before medication. I hope it turns out well! ...Read more

Smoker with anxiety symptoms. Cough mucus short of breath. Heard quitting causes shortness of breath. I ALREADY can't breathe. Nervous to try.

Smoker with anxiety symptoms. Cough mucus short of breath. Heard quitting causes shortness of breath. I ALREADY can't breathe. Nervous to try.

You can quit: There's a rarely mentioned fact I know: The smoking breath pattern - In, Hold, Exhale (fully, slowly) thru lips - is very, very good for you. That pattern alone can lower BP (for awhile) and makes you feel really good. When smokers quit, they lose this advantage. Some of the distress is due to this. You can win by continuing to do the breath pattern w/out the cigarette! 'Smoke' w/out cigarettes! ...Read more

I'm bedridden with CFS. Feel short of breath at all times. Can't hold breath or even speak a sentence. Is this typical of deconditioning? O2 "normal"

See you doc: If you have been bedridden for an extended period, you may have developed blood clots in you legs that may have dislodged and gone into your lungs, causing potentially, a pulmonary embolism. Even if you O2 is normal, is that with oxygen supplementation? Are you completely still or does it drop with activity? Regardless, your symptoms are not normal, even for a pt with CFS. ...Read more

Yes, but...: Panic attacks are usually a diagnosis of exclusion meaning that your physical symptoms need to be investigated systematically and carefully for an objective condition, only when it is certain there is no other reason for those does one entertain the diagnosis of panic attacks.
