Feels like I can’t breathe but my breathing seems normal

Edited , 4 users are following.

i feel like i cant breathe like at any moment my lungs will stop but everyone says my breath sounds normal and i can talk. My chest hurts and it feels tight like someones squeezing my lungs. It feels like I cant get enough oxygen, like my lungs are struggling or clogged with mucus but im not coughing or wheezing. Is it considered shortness of breath and what could it be?

And before anyone says im almost positive its not anxiety

    It sounds like a panic attack which can be cured by relaxing or exercise

      i dont think its a panic attack because this is all the time and im not stressed or anxious about anything. ive never had a panic attack that lasted for two weeks and im not hyperventilating, crying, gasping, or struggling to breathe like any other panic attack

      No a doctor said it could be acid reflux but i had an endoscopy done and that was negative.

      i dont think it was a panic attack because this is constant for two weeks and im not anxious or panicking. it doesnt feel like a panic attack im not gasping for air, struggling to breathe, crying, or hyperventilating like a normal panic attack. ive also been having nausea and vomiting again all the time and it feels like im constantly going to vomit like the feeling you get when you know your about to throw up because you have that feeling in your throat

      My suggestion is to look at your diet. how much fibre your getting and where from. If is a acid reflux you possibly need to stop all acidic food such as oranges, spices and the like. Eat alkaline foods such as rice, sweet potatoes etc and see what happens. Also did your doctor give you anything for it.

      All the best Martin
