I've been having breathing problem for about 4-5 years but these past couple months has gotten worse. I went to the urgent care and they did some testing on me but found nothing serious. The doctor didn't prescribed me any medication because she found nothing wrong with me so instead she said if I was comfortable I could use the inhaler since I told her when I use my moms inhaler it helped me. So then she prescribed me the inhaler. But before prescribing me the inhaler, I told her that when I used my moms inhaler it gave me anxiety and I feel tired so she said she would prescribed me with an inhaler that does not have the side effects of those. But when I used it , I still feel anxiety, tired, and I find myself just sitting there like a depressing person. My heart also races fast. I don't know anymore. Last week I couldn't even sleep until 4am because I couldn't breathe well so I stood up the whole night. And I'm not sure if I have asthma. The doctor said there is a chance but I would need to check it up with my primary doctor but I can't do that right now because my primary doctor doesn't take my health insurance plan so I would have to switch it to a different plan it find a different primary doctor. Could it be something serious? Maybe because I haven't been workout lately? I'm not sure!
