Morning all. I need some advice. For a while I have been suffering with air hunger on and off. About 3-4 weeks ago I had a bad choking episode. It was very scary but until last Thursday night I managed to continue eating normally. When I was eating my tea I got the sensation that I was gonna choke and have hardly been able to eat since. On Friday in work the panic attacks started and over the weekend it was constant. I went to the emergency doctors twice being prescribed propananolol 3 times a day, this has took the edge off the anxiety but it is still there constantly. I am scared of choking and now really struggling to eat.
I went to my doctors about the air hunger and choking episode about 3 weeks ago. I was told the choking was probably just a spasm and nothing to worry about. She had a feel of my neck but said it felt fine. I asked about why my ferritin had dropped as advised on here but the doctor had no concerns over my ferritin because it's within range. She did agree to increase Levothiroxine fromm 100mg to 125mg per day, my TSH was 1.40. I have ordered an at home blood test kit for full thyroid, ferritin,folate and B12.
Any advice would be great thank you.
