In December of 08 I went to the doctor when I started not really being able to breath. Like, I couldn't manage to yawn because I couldn't inhale that deeply. For the last seven months it's constantly been like that. I suppose that it's gotten better, and I can yawn most of the time now, but I don't even remember what it feels like to take deep breaths.
The first doctor thought it was asthma, which would make sense. But my inhaler does nothing once so ever. The second, and last, doctor I saw I think I ended up seeing for three or four weeks in a row. She was pretty sure that I had a vocal cord dysfunction. But something just doesn't really feel right about that. From what I've read, with VCD it should be on and off. For me it's always there.
I know it's possible I should go back to the doctor, but I have a feeling it'll just be all 'you have this...oh wait, no, now you have this...no, now you have this.' And while I totally understand that's how it goes, I don't really want to sit through all of that.
Also, I've read that VCD mostly occurs in people that are athletic. Like, people who are in the Olympics. And also it's mostly in older people. I'm thirteen. I ride horses, a decent work out, at least four times a week, but still.
I've gotten really sharp pains before that feel like they're under my rib cage under my last rib...
I'm not sure what to do, really. I don't like knowing that I could pass out at any given moment because I don't really have all that much air in my lungs, or at least it doesn't feel like it.
