     You went to the doctor and everything is normal. A chest x-ray would have shown if you had pneumonia. Are you an anxious person? Anxiety can cause all sorts of symptoms including chest pains and shortness of breath. 

    Besides the chest pain and shortness of breath what other symptoms are you having?

    You're short of breath because you're anxious. Trust me, I have thought the doctors missed something literally everyday for a year. Pneumonia or a blood clot would have showed up on hospital tests.. A blood clot you would have been gone already. Just take slow breaths, you're probably short of breath because you're hyperventilating and do not realise it. Breathe in slower and do not take deep breaths, that'll make it worse

    Hi Tammy I'm sorry about the way you're feeling but I can definitely relate so I've been diagnosed with tachycardia and heart palpitations 10 years ago all of a sudden my medicine stopped working it started in my gut I felt nauseous I do have reflux and gastritis solid feeling short of breath feel like I can't breathe tightness in the head throat chest I still feel anxious sometimes like today but still not as bad as I was before I still have that feeling like I can't breathe cuz my breathing has changed for the palpitations but it's not as bad I'm getting out more I took some advice off of here when anxiety happens just let it happen don't try to fight it keep yourself calm and accept that it's anxiety is not going to hurt you then I came up with one on my own I just had it not to live with anxiety but make the anxiety live with me that way I'm in control I just try to keep busy even though I still think about it but I keep redirecting my thoughts
