Starting two or three weeks ago, I was having slight trouble breathing at night while in bed. It felt almost as if I was breathing through a straw. Sunday night immediately after dinner I felt a pain in my chest, in the center a few inches below my chin. It feels like it is in my esophoghus/lung area. I can only feel the pain when I have the hiccups or swollow something hard like oatmeal. The pains have not gotten worse but I am having trouble breathing all the time now, not just at night. I feel like my airways are obstructed and I can not pull as much air in.

I do NOT have any of the following symptoms:
*Soar throat
*Mucus build up
*Change in voice

There is no way to tell if I am fatigued by this, I haven't gotten much sleep lately anyway. I do not have a history with asthma and I have never had bronchitis or pneumonia. I am physically fit and I occasionally cardio train.

I am growing concerned as the symptoms are slowly getting worse. I would like to schedule a doctor's appointment very soon. I am concerned it is some sort of respitory infection, or possibly cancer. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks.
