I have had anxiety and depression my whole life and it started to get bad after I had a small car accident. I found I was nervous/anxious 24/7. And for the last 3 months I haven't been able to breath fully for a full day. I made my mom rush to to doctors 2 times for a heart attack because my hands felt numb and I couldn't take a full breath. I got an ECG I think it's called they hooked me up to 15 wires around my chest and took blood and said your fine it's just anxiety. At which point I had to ask the doctor her qualifications and if she was just saying it to make me feel better. Still or satisfied I did a full blood work test and everything was in normal range except for a touch of iron. Still not satisfied to clinic to have him put a stethoscope on my heart and longs and he said it's fine. Still not satisfied I went to my family doctor and I told him I can ever breath and my chest feels tight and he said "yup that's normal in anxiety sufferes" so I asked him if he could hook me up to a heart monitor for 24 hours and laughed and said no. I feel like something is physically wrong with either my heart or lungs and the doctors and my mom are brushing it off to calm me down.
Anyways sorry for story, but have any of you guys had the feeling of not being able to take a full nice relaxing breath for a period of months. I just feel pain in my chest sometimes in the middle or sometimes on sides. Belly breathing helps a bit but I feel like I need an X-ray or some sort of test I don't believe the doctors, I second guess them and ask them how long they went to school, it's really stupid but if I don't ask then I won't believe them more.
So it's mostly about my breathing. For a few hours I'm fine but then it comes back for a few hours.
FYI I am on anti depressants. And diagnosed with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder)
