RightOn!MostSymptoms. of advanced disease are not symptoms which do not occur when healthy; they are exaggerations of symptoms which normally occur.

Is it true tht U yawn nt bc your bored tired or stress but bc your nt getting enough oxygen bc I feel that way when I'm short of breath?

Several theories. Yawning (oscitation) most often occurs in adults immediately before and after sleep, during tedious activities and as a result of its contagious quality. Theories involve yawning to get more oxygen to remove a build up of Carbon Dioxide, Boredom, an evolution theory (because our ancestors did it), and a "brain cooling" theory. Read more...

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...
