Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX something that could wait to get checked out for a day or two (huge deadline at work) or should I go promplty?
Also, on a different note, my previous doctor said I have anxiety problems, but I am concerned it has escalted into something worse. The only way I can fall asleep now is to lie on the floor on my back, in order to have no problems breathing. I often feel short of breath during the day and i feel these symptoms are too serious just to be related to anxiety. Should I get a second opinion or do you think this is related also?
My only concern about the anxiety is that it's a feeling that stays with me all day. It gets worse after I eat or drink alcohol (morning after drinking a lot of alcohol feels like I can't breathe at all that day). Don't know if it matters, but after I burp I feel much better for a few minutes, its like a huge sigh relief.
Is there anymore help you can provide on this matter? It's been a daily problem for over a year now that I have had no relief from. It is now starting to interrupt my daily life (in the beginning it was only at night and I could not fall asleep because of it).
But is there a way for me to determine (without going to my doctor) that it's all anxiety related rather than something more serious like heart or lungs?
I guess I am asking is there a chance the doctor jumped to that conclusion too quickly? Are there signs or symptoms that differeniate between heart and lungh problems with anxiety?
Sorry for the mulitple questions, just want to be sure before I head to the doctor and know the right questions to ask.
