Hi everyone, I have been experiencing some troubling shortness of breath for a while now. This shortness of breath occurs mostly while I'm sedentary, like when I'm just sitting down or in bed. It feels as if I can't fully breathe in a full breath of air and I am left feeling the need to yawn in order to get a satisfying breath. I'd say this started around March. At first I thought this was due to my being out of shape, but I have since added an exercise regime and cleaned my eating habits (had high cholesterol at the doctor's office- they have since lowered even though the levels are still relatively high for my age) to no avail. I'm still out of breath a lot of the time! I have also noticed that recently I have been feeling much more emotional than usual. I've been really irritable lately and I have days where I'm on constantly the verge of tears! Some other symptoms include hair loss (very mild), weekly headaches (which have now decreased in frequency after increasing my water intake), and faintness when standing up too quickly. I'd really appreciate any help with this, I shouldn't be feeling this way- I'm only 20 years old and a relatively healthy (healthy weight, no other medical problems) young woman. Please help! :)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
