Hello Hinakura and welcome to the forum. We do not have medical personnel here and the only person who can offer you an accurate diagnosis is your doctor. Do remember though that being anxious can have an impact on your breathing even when nothing else is wrong. Go ahead and rebook the x-ray, find out what (if anything) is wrong and then talk to your doctor about any treatment you may need. We have members here with all kinds of lung conditions and they will be happy to offer you support but they cannot tell you what is causing your problems. :)


Thanks Mrsmummy, last week i was diagnosed having a chronic cryptic tonsillitis and was told i might have a rheumatic heart disease by a specialist, so since my doctor was still not around til monday ill asked to resched the xray.. Thank you for responding


Hello Hinakura .

I'm so sorry you're feeling that way. How distressing for you. I can only imagine how anxious you must be.

I'm afraid no one here will be able to tell you what kind of illness you have. You'd have to see a doctor and undergo testing to get a proper diagnosis. I know it seems very overwhelming and we usually think of the worse possible scenarios. But I think if you get tested and start to get some help for your anxiety and other possible issues , step by step you will feel better.

If you are anxious about testing and seeing a doctor, ask a family member or trusted friend to come along with you to the appointment. It's okay to ask for help and support. Baby steps. 💖

Thinking of you.
