I'm experiencing shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Customer Question

Hi I'm experiencing shortness of breath or difficulty breathing and I know from medical specialists that its not my hear lungs throat nose stomach or nervous system. Four different neurologists told me after running tests that they see nothing wrong. One week after I snorted cocaine I became short on breath. I also feel like I need to breath voluntarily deeply and hard with a lot of strength to catch my breath. Now Im on gabapentin and that takes away the pain and weakness. Cocaine has a big impact on nervous system. What could the problem be. Could it be autonomic neuropathy. I have a lot of symptoms for fibromyalgia. The cocaine made my involuntary or automatic breathing bad. I have to make myself breath voluntarily . Do you know what it could be
