I spent many months last year trying to get an explanation of my breathing problems - mainly tight chestedness.
Eventually it was decided I didn't have asthma and the problems were largely alleviated by treating my allergies. The consultant also pointed out that I wasn't breathing deeply or regularly enough so suggested I saw a respiratory physio. I picked up some useful exercises ( despite him trying to find out what I was anxious about all the time when my only anxiety was my breathing problem ).
Unfortunately I am now back at the level of tight chestedness I was at before while still taking all the anti-allergy meds.
The problem seems to come on when I have been teaching. I work as a private maths tutor and two hours of one to one tuition can leave me feeling more tired and tight than it ought to. I find it hard to think about the breathing and teach at the same time. I can talk all day socially. The recent problems also started when the weather turned colder and my daily bike ride was getting to be more of an effort.
Has anyone else had experience like this ? Does anyone have any ideas ?
