Hi I have a question 4 years ago I broke cfl light bulb by accident I was wondering what effect will it do to me because when it I had symptoms of chest tightness and breathing problems to this day I still have bit of chest tightness I am scared that I ha

It's much more likely that coincidentally the bulb broke and u experienced chest tightness & shallow breathing (symptoms of a panic attack or anxiety disorder) at the same time. If u r not under treatment, the panic attacks can continue, in abbreviated form, until u do get it diagnosed & treated properly. TTYD about it. ...Read more

Too many areas: Nerves supply specific areas. There's no nerve that supplies both your hands, chest and lungs. I think the pinched nerve hypothesis doesn't explain your symptoms. Instead, perhaps you should be fully evaluated. A chest x-ray, ekg, blood work and other tests as needed would provide a lot of information. ...Read more
