Recently when ever I walk (which is often) I have trouble

Customer Question

Recently when ever I walk (which is often) I have trouble catching my breath, swallowing, and my throat feels really dry. I dont have any medical conditions besides my newly-found allergy to Dust. Is there a way to stop this and what exactly is happening?

dry mouth and dry throat can be due to sjogren's syndrome.

you should see a doctor and get checked for this and see if you have this.

do you have anxiety symptoms? severe anxiety symptoms can also cause dry throat and difficulty swallowing and trouble catching your breath.
