i have a question, i have been having a tightness in my chest for the last week and a half. What I have been feeling can be described as this: diffuculty breathing or just hard to catch my breathe ( especially when sitting up or standing, easier to breathe when lying down) When i first noticed this it was very very mild,but i it got worse after being around cigar smoke. I went to the doctor last wednesday, just to make sure i didn't have phemonia or nothing like that.
Soon after pain, I started to feel tightness in my chest. It is difficult to explain the tightness. It is not tightness caused by congestion. If feels like my chest is heavy or the muscles are laboring more to suck air into my lungs. Today the pain in the back feels more like a burning sensation. It also seems like my face is a little swollen. Any thoughts and help will be appreciated...
I am 51 years old. For the past 12 years, after getting a cold and chest congestion, I am unable to speak fluently due to me chest tightening up while exhaling/talking. This only occurs after the congestion travels from my sinuses to my chest. At this time, I have been to the dr's and they do not find any problems with my lungs. I was also to a neurologist and was cleared of any issues with the brain.
Other question for the community - I actually had a few days of tension/tightness in chest and heart-burn for about a week - is that common with this clan as well?
Except for the other symptoms I'd have thought I pulled a muscle wile lifting weights. I also had a slight feeling of chest congestion. After about a week I developed a minor cold but the other symptoms went away. Within a week, though, I was waking up with night racing again, anxiety, chest tightness. This lasted about three days. Then it subsided to the knot again. I have continued have minor symptoms for the last couple of months.
me too!!!! i recently came down with what I thought was a cold and experienced extremely bad symptoms (coughing, wheezing, itchy, watery eyes, congestion) the whole bit! This was probably the worst "cold/flu" virus that I have had in my lifetime. I'm 32. Turns out about a week and a half later - I started to get twitching in my left eye and the muscles in the left side of my face started to weaken.
About 2 weeks ago, I got my bi-yearly cold/sinus infection. I stopped going to the doctors for this because i'm just so used to it and all they give me in anti-biotics. I just suffer the few days through it, then typically go for a week of coughing up mucus. Well this most recent one 2 weeks ago lasted for about 4 days, when I felt the sinus pressure go away, I had a cough that lasted pretty bad for about 1.5 weeks. To this day (2 weeks after initial symptoms) I cough very lightly.

After the mucus went away this feeling of discomfort and tightening of my wind pipe started and a shortness of breath.
Hi all. I had an ablation 4 weeks ago and since that time I have been experiencing chest tightness, pressure, and sharp pains in the heart. I am seeing my doctor on a weekly basis to determine the cause and undergo treatment. Following a work up of tests (echo, nuclear stress, ekg, etc.) the doctor has determined that everything in the heart is normal and that this "discomfort may be something that I just have to ride out.

We both had a bad cough, congestion, tightness in our chest, sore throat, and sinus blockage and drainage. I'd go back to my doctor and let the doctor know you are still having problems. We have found if you don't clear this up with antibiotics, it will get worse and you'll just get sick again. Good luck.
It started off with phlegm in throat and a hoarse voice and then gradually changed into a cough with chest tightness and feeling tired and weak. The cough is actually quite bad at night. Anybody ever heard of this? Know how long it will last?

47:22: I've been having an assortment of issues similar to yours, for over a year and a half. I don't have an answer myself, but I'm still looking hard for one. During most of '97 I had frequent heartburn (3-4x/wk) and frequent gas (both constant burping and painful unreleased pressure). I didn't think much of it, just took OTC calcium carbonate for the burn and simethicone for the gas.
( For the past month had increasing chest tightness, pain and just feeling breathless on stairs etc. Lung doc changed me to Adavair, and after a week I still felt more pain, tightness so I went to walk in. After consulting my asthma doc they decided to give me a course of steroids to nip the attack in the bud. I started prednisone yesterday (30mg) and then developped a bad cold (which is probably why my asthma was flairing since I was coming down with a cold).
I have extreme muscle ticks and spasms, swollen lymph nodes, chest vibrations, heart palpitations, migrane headaches, IBS, chest tightness and swollen nasal passages. That's really just the half of it. I sure with my doctor's could figure this out. I'm thinking about seing a homeopathic doctor.
So if anyone has any insight for fatigue, left side of chest pain into the back, sweaty then cold and at times a gurggling in the chest at times. I would appreciate your input.
I am not coughing a lot but still have a lot of chest congestion. I have to clear my thoat a great deal. I feel tightness in my chest, throat, and upper back area. I seem to be experiencing some indigestion as well. I am a fitness instructor and have been teaching my intense cardio classes with less difficulty over the past few weeks. The pressure has been ongoing for the last 3 weeks.
Guaifenesin is found in many medications similar to Mucinex that thins the mucus in your bronchial tubes. I started taking Mucinex DM because of chest congestion about 4 days ago... which is exactly when this sensation started happening. Its actually happening right now as I type this. Beneath my right shoulder blade, about 2 inches from my spine, this feeling occurs. It feels like something is touching me (like a shirt) even when I don't have a shirt on.
At least now since I have read that some of you have been to the doctor and had normal chest scans it makes me feel better. I had a chest xray last year when I was sick with a bad head/chest cold and they didn't see anything unusual then. It seems that several people mentioned having acid reflux, I also was diagnosed with that about 5 years ago, but have since changed my eating habits and don't get it anymore.
Hi, i was wondering if trapped gas can cause chest soreness, chest tightness, shortness of breath, stabbing pain which is severe enough to think you are having a serious heart problem. and if the answer is yes, how does one go about solving this trapped gas problem? Thanks.
Occasionally she also experiences dizziness, and often tightness in the chest. The tightness she describes as similar to congestion, as from a cold. She recently recovered from pneumonia, about 5 weeks ago. 3 weeks ago she thought the pneumonia was still causing shortness of breath and sensitivity to extreme temperatures so she went to her doctor. He said there is no pneumonia, asthma, etc. in the lungs but noticed a high pulse.
About 3 days after that I started getting a tightness in my chest and congestion, but not really a sore throat. The day after I had sex with my TS friend I french kissed a woman friend. My woman friend is now complaining of a sore throat 4 days after I kissed her. Is it possible I got throat gonorrhea from my TS friend and gave it to my woman friend by kissing her? Based on everything I've read, I think I'm over reacting and this is probably a virus that will run it's course.
I began to have chest heaviness and tightness with breathing about the last week of radiation. I kept thinking I was getting a cold and it was the beginning of chest congestion. Didn't say much and resting it felt ok. However, when walking or doing any major movement I would get winded. Went to the oncologist and the Pulse Ox resting was 97 but as soon as they WALKED me down the hallway it shot down to 85.
Albuterol is used to prevent and treat wheezing, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, and coughing caused by lung diseases such as asthma. She has an infection at the moment and hopefully the course of antibiotics she is one will clear it up. If she is now asthmatic, she will have flare ups to irritants. These can be anything from sprays, smoke, the cold, the heat and a dry atmosphere, dust, dander, wool, pets etc.
