Hi, so im 14 and very recently theres been a family trauma. My brothers girlfriend was 19 and she had an asthma attack in our home and passed away. It was horrible and what happened to her has had a massive impact on me and my family. It started off with feeling like i couldnt breathe properly, this would happen every day on and off but when i was occupied i would forget about it. It's gradually got worse. I've been to the doctors and she said its all just anxiety and that my heart and lungs sound perfect and that they're fine. But i did have an ear infection- however thats cleared now and every day i feel like i can't breathe. i have to stop what im doing and focus on my breathing even though i am breathing fine i just feel like i cant breathe properly and that im not getting enough oxygen. I've been experiencing an extremely tight chest which hurts when i press down on a certain point and its really scaring me. My heart is also beating fast ALL the time and i've been getting quick pains underneath both of my armpits. The thing is though, when the breathing thing comes on sometimes really sudden i dont feel anxious until i feel like i can't breathe right- the chest, armpit pains and my heart beating fast are also scaring me and so is the fact that this happens EVERY single day and is starting to affect my daily life. Ive had a few panic attacks also which have just made me feel even worse and it takes me a day to feel a little bit better. i'm just scared, ive googled it and its saying stuff like heart failure and other major life threatening things. i feel anxious about how im feeling.
