For two days now about every thirty seconds i get the need to take a deep breath in. .. . . kind of like a yawn. Every now and then my face and lips begin to tingle as if im not getting enough air. Ive never had asthma. Im 16 and have been smoking for one and a half years, Im afraid that if I go to the doctor he will tell my parents i smoke. Is this serious though.... do i need to see a doctor, or is it just allergies possibly. Please help.

  • Yes- You need to see a doctor. It could be because of allergies, could possibly be allergy asthma. I'm sure you know what smoking does to your lungs. Even if your parents would get upset with you about smoking, it is most important for you to be able to breath! Also, remember doctor-patient policy. I'm not sure it applies to minors, but go to a doctor. I am not trying to scare you, but you not being able to breath effects your WHOLE body, eventually. You need oxgen, and tingling lips is a sign of not getting enough.

  • I have the same thing happening to me. Like every 30 secs....I have to take a deep breath. Its making me feel sleepy and very tired. I just want to lay down and sleep allday. Plus, I have MVP. But I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. Plus my mother has asthma. Never had allergies before.
