  • When you have these attacks, get your docs office to put a finger probe on your finger and test for oxygen saturation levels (O2 Sat's). If you are getting enough oxygen to your fingers, then it's not a breathing problem. Did you have any attacks while you were in the hospital? Were you monitored? What did they say about it? In the meantime, get some acid reflux over the counter stuff and see if that helps. (Like Prilosec)
