Hello everyone,

Recently I have had some trouble breathing, and it has worsened. My chest feels very congested and I have to put effort into simply breathing. Now yesterday night this got so bad that I couldn't sleep, because whenever I would start to doze off, I would stop breathing. I have been awake closing in on 48 hours. I have seen a doctor, my O2 Sat. is 100%, no wheezing. The doctor prescribed an albuterol inhaler and it hasnt been doing me much good. I am still sitting here in bed, trying to sleep but i cannot!!!

Anyone have an idea what might be causing this?
