I am 60 years old and female. Basically healthy. Been taking a prescribed water pill for borderline high blood pressure. Usually 135/70. I suspect I have sleep apnea since I snore and I actually feel my soft pallet block my throat at times. No pain during breathing, sometimes when I cough. Phlegm is in my lungs. I was making a horrible racket while attempting to sleep. Yes, I am a smoker, but no alcohol or drugs. it came on quickly. It began on Thursday with a slight raw feeling in my chest, Friday I felt all foggy, then at it hit me full force.
Why the pressure in the middle of my chest?
