This has been a problem for about a year now. I'll try to make it short.

In the beginning at random times throughout the day i'd have episodes of my breath shortening and becoming uncomfortable and making hard for me to breathe. It happened once or twice while I was dancing but all the other multiple times it appeared randomly when I was calm. I went to the doctor, got an echo where they found nothing and was prescribed Albuterol. At first it seemed to help then later it just made it worse. Then a couple of months it died down.

Now it's back again but the symptoms are a bit different. Still shortness of breath and heavy feeling on my chest along with pains around the middle of it. At times i'll feel nauseous and the other night I probably got near the worst of all the episodes. It started out slow and then built up to a point where I was gasping for air repeatdly, i guess wheezing and when i stood i was a bit dizzy and after the breathing had settled I felt nauseous.

I haven't a clue about it and I want to go to the doctor again but I dont want to be told, nothings wrong if there is something. So please, help anyone.
