I was diagnosed with Asthma in July of last year and have done really good until a couple weeks ago. I am almost constantly out of breath! I feel like I cant catch a good/ deep breath. I keep yawning to try to get a good breath in. It has been the worse for the past few days. I keep having to take breaks when walking, I get S.O.B in the shower and even when I am just sitting or laying down. I go back to the Dr today but he doesnt know what it is. I am already on the qvar inhaler, albuterol inhaler, and albuterol breathing treatments since all of this is happening and it was helping some at first but now nothing helps!! The dr done blood work and everything came back normal except one of the test indicated a blood clot but the dr said he wasnt worried about it cause I dont have any other symptoms of a clot, but I dont understand why the test would show that. My main symptom is the shortness of breath, and sometimes I get slight chest pain in the middle of my chest. What could this be?? Its affecting my life too much, I feel awful for having to take breaks all the time at work or just walking in Walmart!
