I have a combination of asthma and fixed small airways disease, diagnosed from my tight chest and incessant winter colds. The former is reversible and that is what steroids are for; the latter is not and steroids won't help that, as far as I am aware. For any fixed airway obstruction, you need Ventolin or something similar or longer acting. You might like to explore that with your doctor.

The other thing is to try not to worry too much because that is a classic cause of chest pain and heart palpitations. You might wish to your doctor about that too!

Good luck.

See a McTimony chiropractor. Pressure on the vagus nerve can cause all sorts of funny symptoms. Lack of blood pressure can cause all sorts of funny symptoms. You moving around but if you suddenly decide to relax a lot of muscles than the veins and arteries open up and blood will drain away from the head. Result brain starved of nutrient and it malfunctions.

One habit a number of people develop is to cave in the chest. This can cause problems. It is not picked up because doctors are not trained to detect things caused by muscle misbehaviour. Might be worth see an Alexander technique teacher to learn how to improve posture and fine muscle control.

Hope this helps.
