Hi there,

I'm in a foreign country/location which makes a doctors diagnosis a bit of an issue.

For the past couple of days I've had something of a chest tightness, it feels as if there's downward pressure on my chest making automated breathing hard and I now only breathe in short breathes beacuse of this tightness. I also feel somewhat lightheaded because of this, no sign of a panic attack or heart racing but somewhat of a scary thing.

Mostly though its allmost as if the automated response to breathe is lacking and I'm having to conciously breathe deep breathes. It also affects my sleeping somewhat but physical activity has no noticable impact, i.e. I dont feel any more or less short of breathe in physical activity.

Any suggestions or reccomendations?

Many thanks
