For the past two years I have suffered with feelings of a tight chest like a pressure feeling feels constricted. I also get feeling of what I call air hunger a feeling like I'm not breathing properly. I can feel out of breath sometimes pushing toddler in buggy or reading stories to my children.
These symptoms tend to come and go for eg they can last days weeks or sometimes months at a time then I can feel normal for a while. In the last 6 months I have also had a rash on my chest the spots are always there but the redness flares up now and then it doesn't itch. I have also had random bouts of itchiness all over my body at times and itchy scalp. I have also noticed that I sometimes wheeze but usually only at night while in bed.
A year ago I saw my GP about this she thought it was anxiety (I didn't have he wheeze then) but she gave me a blue inhaler to see if it helped no tests or anything. If didn't help but to be honest I don't think I was using it properly. Anyway I'm seeing my GP (a different one) on Monday for the results of some tests and I wanted advice about what tests he should be doing to find out if this is asthma and what you think of my symptoms? This current flare has now lasted a month and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever feel ok again have also got a cough/cold at the moment so feeling rough generally.
Edited to add: another symptom I get is pain in lung area feels tender to touch as well. I've had a chest X-ray waiting for dr to review it on Monday.
