What I'd like to know is why my doctor would suggest that my breathing difficulties is due to me injuring my neck - many years ago in a car crash.
It has only recently (3 years now) begun hasseling me, so much so that sleeping on my right side restricts my breathing. I gasp for breath and try to keep in it when I do manage to get a good gulp of air which does help to certain extent.
I gave up smoking many years ago and even the doctor has confirmed that my lungs are clean.
The doctor claims that the nerves have been hurt affecting the right side of my lungs, also chest pains on the right side and arm tingles.
It doesnt appear to be life threatening but really does bother me wanting to get more air and I cant fill up my lungs
