Ladies i really am finding it hard to breath! I can't seem to fill my lungs and i feel like i have an elephant sitting on my chest! Its been happening for a few weeks now but this morning it is very bad! Because i can't get my breath i am panicking (sp?) and i suffer from anxiety anyway so i'm getting myself really worked up, its really scarey and i was wondering if anyone knows of any positions i can get in to help me fill my lungs xxx
I get this hun and find all 4's the best! I've also just been to GP about it and even though im not asthmatic he has given me an inhaler which not only helps loads, but stops me panicking knowing its there if i need it. Get yourself quacks hun, hope your feeling better soon xxxxx
I've got myself into a right state now! I feel like ringing for an ambulance not a doctor. Need to calm down and stop crying coz its making it worse! I'm not usually one for drama like but i've got myself worked right up!
Firstly have you any tightness in your chest or does it hurt to breathe?
The hospital asked me this last week,I have the same thing.
I wake up in a complete panic because I can't get proper breaths out.
Dr's told me that everything is being pushed upward and no space and thats why I am having the problem.
He advised at night sleeping partly upright(lots of pillows) and that is helping a bit,at least I don't feel like I am drowning.
I get it in the day too and when I can't catch the breath I get hyper which makes it worse!
Thanks cybermum. Its not pain but it feels quite tight but more like my lungs have shrunk and i can't fill them! I've calmed down now so i am breathing much better although its still uncomfortable. It seems to be worse after i've eaten, even if its just a little bit.
Loraloo, i tried all 4's and it did ease the discomfort a bit, thanx hun! xx
