Symptoms: CHEST TIGHTNESS/HEAVINESS AND RADIATES TO THE BACK. ARM MUSCLE WEAKNESS/HEAVINESS. DIZZINESS AND TROUBLE INHALING AND EXHALING OUT PROPERLY. Feeling of suffocation and feeling of THROAT OBSTRUCTION WITH TROUBLE SWALLOWING.
TIME FRAME: 11 weeks. Symptoms last all day long and night and do not get relived by rest.
TESTS DONE: DEEP BLOOD WORK, CHEST X RAY/CAT SCAN OF BRAIN TO ABDOMEN. ENDOSCOPY/EKG/ECHOCARDIOGRAM/BARIUM SWALLOW. ALL NORMAL.
Lung function test results were poor. Apparently I’m only blowing a 1/3 of air and I’m supposed to be inhaling and exhaling 3 times that. Pulmonologist is not sure what is going on with me since I have no clear signs of lung disease but apparent respiratory muscle weakness and airway constriction. I have an ENT APPOINTMENT on Thursday to get my nose/throat scoped and a deeper swallowing exam . Any ideas or exams I should ask for besides the ones named above? IM DESPERATE PLEASE HELP! I forgot to mention that my diaphragm feels numb as if it were paralyzed. Pulmonologist gave me an asthma bronchilador to see if it could possible be asthma. Today I took it but it didn’t help. The most ironic part is that the symptoms are ALL DAY LONG with no relief what so ever. Symptoms were not as bad the first month. They have progressively gotten worse. PLEASE HELP WITH POSSIBLE IDEAS OR EXAMS I CAN GET DONE OR EVEN OPINIONS ON WHAT IT COULD BE. I’m 20 years old. I have tried anxiety medication and have been very calm through all this so please don’t comment if you think it’s anxiety.
