Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I see you were taking cocaine.
you need to stop taking cocaine.
this can cause you to be more paranoid and more anxious.
and can affect your lungs as well.
you need to stop using cocaine
and start to exercise and eat more healthy and your breathing will get better on its own
it sounds like your anxiety symptoms are getting out of control with worry here as well.
you are still breathing when you sleep at night
you automatic breathing mechanisms are still working.
then you need to stop cocaine.
then it is not affecting your breathing
you have excessive anxiety symptoms which are making you worried about breathing.
but there is nothing wrong with your breathing
you need treatment to decrease your anxiety symptoms
or else you will just continue to worry about breathing.
gabapentin can help decrease some anxiety symptoms in some patients.
there is no breathing neurological condition which gets worse when you get massages and take protein supplements.
you still breath at night time.
you breath throughout the day no matter if you are thinking about it or not.
you should stop smoking if you are worried about your breathing
the problem with your your breathing is not in your lungs
you should see a pulmonary lung doctor and get a pulmonary function test
I bet it will be normal
your automatic breathing centers in your brain are in the deepest parts of your brain and are not injured by cocaine use.
no, the nerves that control involuntary breathing can not be injured from cocaine.
these are the same nerves which come from the brain and control voluntary breathing
if you can voluntary breath, those nerves are working fine.
you are breathing when you sleep at night which is involuntary.
your breathing is fine.
