Hi. I'm 19 years old and have recently (past 3 days) been experiencing difficulty breathing. I feel like I can't get a big enough breath in, and I have to breathe through my mouth and constantly struggle to get enough air. I went to see my GP yesterday who gave me an inhaler but was unconvinced that it was asthma, and last night it got really bad and I went to A+E where they did chest x-rays and blood tests but found nothing abnormal. it's definitely not asthma or an allergy, but no doctor can offer any other diagnosis than 'anxiety' However, I am not an anxious person, although this problem is making me so. I am physically fit and have never had breathing difficulties before, so this is all quite scary and frustrating! I don't know where the next port of call is, since no doctor's can offer any explanation.
