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

21 y.o. low WBC 3.9&high monocytes10%. Usually have higher WBC 6-9.fatigued, stomach burning, chest pain, mucus in throat, short of breath. Diagnosis?

CBC is not the key: White cell counts fluctuate wildly day by day, even hour by hour. You should not even look at the percentages, but only the absolute white counts. If the absolute counts are near or in the reference range, and all of them well-formed, then this isn't going to help make the call. A full, competent physical exam, exercise testing, a trial of antacid Rx and possible endoscopy are considerations. ...Read more

I woke up with racing heart, short of breath 9/12. Asthma 1st time in life.  Advair 500/50, ventolin. How to soothe irritated throat & chest?

Heart racing: Not sure about the timing of your events, but heart racing can be secondary to both inhalers, ventolin and advair. Shortness of breath is from asthma. Depending on when your palpitations started, if they occurred after starting the inhalers, ask your doctor for xopenex (levalbuterol) inhaler, it may be better tolerated and has the same effect as ventolin. ...Read more

Dizzy spells, sternum pain, nausea, chest tight, tiredness, short of breath at times, wake up in night with choking sensation. Can it be gerd/reflux?

Yes: Most common cause is gastroesophageal reflux sometimes associated with esophagitis. Sometimes pain mimics heart attack. When gastric acid reaches the vocal folds, airways, and lungs, cause swelling of the passages which can lead to atypical asthma reactions. Such airway damage can affect breathing. Dysphagia is choking. Nausea and tightness of chest. See physician to rule out other causes of pain. ...Read more
