Please respond, I'm living in constant fear.
I began having trouble breathing after a few medical scares and I've been to a pulmanologist who ran blood work, an X Ray, and I did a lung function test. Following that, I had a great fear of death and I fell into depression. My breathing never quite got better but it subsided knowing nothing is wrong with my lungs.
Fast forward two years and now I have had many recent life changes (married, starting a new stressful job, etc) and I have had recent health scares again that all checked out normal. My breathing issue became more aparent. I have had trouble breathing with dizziness and weakness. My biggest fear is that I have noticed that it is only my left side that has difficulty breathing. I often feel I have a right throat on the left side and I cannot get air through my left nostril.
I recently visited a GP who after hearing my background says I have been having panic attacks and was not particularly worried about the breathing. I, however, am having a hard time accepting that a constant feeling that I cannot get air through my left nostril is anxiety caused.
Oh, and in addition, I've been having tight chest feelings, but mostly on the left side again.
Please let me know if this is normal to experience anxiety on one side or not. I'm terrified.
