Hi. I’ve been having an extremely weird breathing sensation that started two days ago. Out of nowhere, I felt like my breath I was taking in was so big (was inhaling normally) and was cold. I’m still noticing this. When I speak, my voice is very raspy, but if I cough a bit, my voice goes back to normal. I’m worried that there is a tear either in my esophagus or trachea or throat. It feels like I’m breathing in moisture when I breathe and it’s still cold air and feels like a big breath of air even though it isn’t. My abdomen is also very swollen. And when I drink water, I can feel it go all the way down into my stomach.
I was in the ER twice where they did a chest X-ray and then did a CT scan of the chest and abdomen yesterday and everything showed up normal. Would the cat scan with contrast be able to show if I had a tear or rupture? The best way to describe is like breathing through a big straw. And my cough sounds like a drum.
The doctors say it could be anxiety. Should I press for more tests? Thanks
