About 5 weeks ago, i had problems with chest tightness and breathing difficulties (no wheezing) and i went to a hospital and had a ECG scan and it was normal. So the doctor said i have asthma (i had asthma with i was 7 and it was well controlled till now. I am now 21 yrs old, 1.65cm and weigh 55.5kg). He gave me 2 inhalers : a blue inhaler and a brown inhaler.

Not only that, it seems that i have chest ache( not pain) last like 1 sec or so it like my heart suddenly pound and felt a bit light headed and suddenly feel weak and feel like crying. It last about 3 to 5 sec and i am back to normal again. Sometimes i did cry but most of the time i didnt. Sometimes i think i am dying all thx to a nightmare i had saying that i gonna die 2 months later about 3 months ago. I went to chinese doctor and he say i was just weak have gas in my stomach.

After 2 weeks later i had neck tightness and burps quite a lot and my asthma is not well controlled. i went to a clinic and the doctor said i have acid reflux and gave me some medicine that last 10 days. He also said that it might be stomach problems that cause my asthma to be The neck tightness went away and the number of burps has decreased a lot. However i still burps when ever i eat or drink something, even water.

My chest ache( not pain) last like 1 sec or so it like my heart suddenly pound and felt a bit light headed and suddenly feel weak and feel like crying stuff did not disappeared. It is just that i dont feel like crying as much as i did last time. Sometimes i do not have chest ache but i still feel a bit light headness and weak and sometimes feel a flush going up my neck and to my face when i am not doing anything esp when i am standing or sitting. I have it a few time everyday. However, i dont get this feeling when i am lying on my bed or when i was sleeping. In addition, i do feel tired (not sleepy) these few days and do not feel like doing anything. And sometimes i dont even feel like breathing as well. Its like i taking a deep breath and then stop breathing for like 10 to 15 sec before i take another breath. However i do not have any breathing difficulties.

Because i realise that this heart suddenly pound+ chest ache+ weak + feel like crying problem likely to appear when i am not engaged in any activities. I keep making myself busy, either by playing online games or going out with friends or doing house work or studying etc. However the tiredness is still there ( i have about 7-9 hours of sleep everyday, any longer will cause me an headache). My weight had drop from 58.1kg to 55.5kg from the past 3 weeks.

Can anyone tell me why i am having this heart pound+ chest ache+ a bit light headed+ weak + feel a bit like crying+tired problem?
