Breathing problems

Hi guys,

I’ve had some trouble for a while now, it started off as a feeling like I had mucus stuck in my throat and I’d need to clear it all the time, it became a bit of a habit clearing my throat all the time, but the feeling of mucus wouldn’t go away, then I started getting a feeling like a numb throat down the bottom middle and right side of throat, I went to doctor and she said everything looks fine, and o could be creating more mucus by trying to clear it all the time, gave me some nasal spray to use for a few weeks, a couple weeks went by and nothing much had changed, so went back again while I was getting my jabs, becuase I’m about to go to Thailand. And she just said it’s still looking fine and there’s nothing wrong she can see, and glands and stuff are fine. Then she told me to take the spray for another 2 weeks and to come back then and she’ll take a look and send me too an air/nose and throat specialist. But just within the last week my breathing has become a little bit restricted, it feels like my throat has closed in a bit and my breathing is louder. And I feel short of breath at times. Like I can’t get a proper breath. I have mild asthma, and the doc tested my lungs and I blew over 650 on the tester, she said that was really good and it dosnt look like it’s my lungs. But at that time my breathing wasn’t bothering me. I also work our regularly and get a really tight back. Could that be pushing on my lungs? Or do you think it’s in my throat? Any advice would be great! Just don’t want it to bother me on my holiday. Also, currently I’m working on a 5 story building and when i get to top floor I’m very short on breath and it’ll feels like I’m only breathing down left side of throat,(right side being the numb feeling side) I’m not sure if I’m just extremely unfit or this is becuase of ny lungs/throat. I’m pretty active, I gym every day. And do cardio every now and then, not too often though . Thank you so much in advance!

Re: Breathing problems

Maybe u have a problem with a respiratory system - or apnea? Sometimes I have it that - I can not catch air - but I have problems with neurosis, but in addition I have a problem with the nasal sinus and almonds (one is too big). better if you try to change your doctor. If everything is ok for him, and you still have a problem, then go to another specialist. Maybe an ENT specialist? ;)

Re: Breathing problems

Hey, I can relate to your condition and I was going through the same situation a few months back. Common causes of feeling short of breath are lung problems, such as asthma and other heart problems, But in my case, it was due to nasal polyp in the nose. It is a non-cancerous growth that forms inside the nose. Most nasal polyps are small and do not cause any physical symptoms. But I had a large nasal polyp that blocked my nasal passages and I felt tough to breathe through the nose. My doctor said small ones can be treated with medications and nasal sprays that help reduce their size. As it's a big one he suggested a rhinoplasty to remove it permanently from my nose. So I did rhinoplasty and its result was amazing. Now I can breathe without any difficulties. So you consult a doctor and ask him to check whether you have such problems in your nose and treat it as soon as possible.
