Customer Question
Hi, I've had sudden...

Hi, I've had sudden intakes of breathe for a year this month. My doctor thought it was anxiety so I am no on sertraline and that worked for a while but recently the breaths came back

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Stress seems to make it worse

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had an appendectomy 12 years ago and no major surgeries since

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
