Hello all I am Joe and also new to this website but here it goes, I had smoked for 9 years i am 25; I quit when i went to boot camp back in 09 for 2 months ad had 0 symptoms except a euphoric feeling all the time. I recently quit for 2 weeks because i was in county lock up (another story) and after getting out i went back for 2 days and decided to quit totally i have been smoke free for a month 28 days to be exact. I am experiencing anxiety attacks (i guess u could call them that) almost everyday to the point i had to go to the ER because it was new to me and i couldnt breath they did the test and nothing was wrong with me and my heart and lungs but the doctor said I had a post Nasal drip prescribed me Mucinex and Affrin nasal spray and they worked and i could breath again without the lump in the back of my throat i took all of the mucinex and used the nasal spray but now the shortness of breath is back and the lump in my throat is there also. I haven't coughed since quitting but my sinuses are producing a whole lot of clear mucus all day everyday all i do is sneeze; My concern is the SOB and has anyone else experienced this and if so when will it subside it is freaking me out to the point im scared to leave the house..... Also when i smoked i smoked approximately 5-10 a day
