Chest tightness shortness of breath dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Chest tightness shortness of breath dizziness


Avatar f tn Significant chest or respiratory symptoms are not reported as an adverse effect of this medicine. Shortness of breath and tightness of the chest could be caused by a problem in your heart or lungs or associated with anxiety. If from the lungs, you could be experiencing Spiriva® HandiHaler® (tiotropium bromide inhalation powder) withdrawal symptoms, depending on what type of lung problem was being treated with the Spiriva® HandiHaler® (tiotropium bromide inhalation powder).
Avatar m tn I have had since cutting down my pills a constant pain in my chest and the constant feeling of shortness of breath is horrible. I know its psychological but that doesnt help whilst in the throes of one of these attacks and if an attack really takes hold of me I get tongue rolling and twitching which can go on for days. Breathing into a paper bag does nothing for me. What a relief to find this forum.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Now that I am on the Prilosec, I am having shortness of breath, chest tightness, dizziness, and malaise. Is this serious? If I have H. Pylori, I want to fix that problem, but am worried that the respiratory involvement and chest pain/tightness might turn into something serious. Zantac has fewer symptoms, and the chest pain is less severe. Will it be effective if I take that with the abx, instead of the PPI?
1531606 tn?1324840243 Your symptoms could be related to a heart disorder, and often there is no symptoms until there is heart failure (symptoms would be shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle fatigue, etc, any one of the symtoms or all)...happened to me. Also, even when the symptoms go away, that doesn't rule any heart problem. Thanks for your question, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.
Avatar f tn Further checking with an electrocardiogram, nuclear stress test, heart pictures and echo cardiogram indicated, to my relief, that the heart was not the cause of my shortness of breath, or discomfort in the chest and abdomen. I am about 15 pounds overweight. My upper abdomen has a tenderness to the feel, slightly below the rib cage.
Avatar n tn ** shortness of breath for no apparent reason **frequent sighing or yawning **chest pains **heart palpitations * sweating * syncope (fainting) * dizziness * trembling * slurred speech * cold, tingling, or numb lips or extremities * nausea or irritable bowel syndrome * aching muscles or joints, or tremors * tiredness, unsteadiness, or diffuse weakness * restless sleep, insomnia, or nightmares * sexual problems * anxiety or phobias
Avatar n tn i have been having shortness of breath and nausea and chest pain for over ten years now but it seems to be getting worst, i thknk the problem is caused from the fact that i always seem to have mucus at my throat which comes up at times but forms back really quickly. Sometimes when i try to take a deep breath i feel as if enough air is not going into my lungs and this makes me start to panick and have to be gasping for air..
Avatar f tn Welcome to our little happy, anxious home! I'm glad you found your way here. What you are going thru is certainly awful, but the great you've been given the "thumbs up" medically, which is good. While no one really wants to have anxiety....we SURELY do not want the answer to be..."Why, yes, you have something physically wrong which is causing your symptoms." ACK! Shortness of breath is one of the more common symptoms of anxiety. It's up there on the list.
Avatar n tn I can't get comfortable in bed right before my period due to chest tightness and shortness of breath. I'm very active and a healthy weight. I've also had EKGs and tests for asthma. I even received an inhaler which I used once and never again. Now I just lie still and try to relax knowing it will go away as soon as I start my period. Doctors also told me I was experiencing panic attacks. It could be anxiety related to PMS.
Avatar n tn Three weeks later I'm still having headache, nausea, and my chest hurts. Any activity causes heavy sweating and shortness of breath, and the chest pains have me worried to death. My head hurts behind my right eye and feels like a pounding in the top of my head. It's not typical of migraines I've had before. I'm tired of meds and refused pain shots due to the fact that I believe they might mask any real symptoms of something else.
Avatar n tn My echo and EKG looked normal, blood tests were normal but an angiogram revealed a sorry state of a left coronary artery. So when people feel something like sudden shortness of breath and chest pains, it doesn't mean nothing has gone wrong simply because a few simple tests say so. They should take the matter seriously and determine the exact cause. A Carotid artery needs to be pretty blocked to notice any symptoms, there is one in either side of the neck and routes to the brain are numerous.
213398 tn?1202674074 wow that is so crazy. those feeling really feel like cardiac in nature.
Avatar m tn -) well i think that i mentioned all my health issues so do u have any idea whats wrong with me? i have chest pains and vertigo and kind of shortness of breath!and i am worried about the cigarettess! i have normal blood pressure about 110 / 75 but i have 90 high rate pulse and sometimes sister says because i was sporting i have higher pulse!
Avatar m tn the symptoms a bit but I still had shortness of breath and fatigue. Oh and I don't have shortness of breath only after exertion. The heartbeats started to come down to 70-80bpm but my shortness of breath persisted. I couldn't really stop at the "anxiety diagnosis" because I was constantly checking my symptoms on Google and I read many people say that one has to rule out any dangerous disease before saying "It is anxiety".
Avatar n tn In my experience, going to sleep made me feel better because it made me feel safe to be in my own home and in bed, but when I awoke, I would be paralized in my bed by self-fulfilling prophecies - dizziness, heaviness in arms and legs, heavy chest, shortness of breath, etc. What started the ball rolling was a lump under my armpit that appeared one day out of the blue, but did not go away.
Avatar f tn I think it may be anemia or hypoglycemia as increasing my sugar intake seems to help with the dizziness, but not the shortness of breath. I am an athlete (did a half ironman last year) and nearly pass out walking up one flight of stairs during my period, am actually finding typing this tiring. Would really like help with this if anyone has an answer, get no joy from the Dr. who sent me for an iron test once when I wasn't on my period and told me I was fine.
Avatar f tn I had a pulmonary test done too and it said there was a little shortness of breath but I am an ex smoker of 20+ years.I quit smoking 5 years ago. Don't know if it would help to mention, I am a 46 year old female. 5'8" and weigh 130. Prior to these spells I've had for past 3 months I would get light headed for a second or two and that was it. It would happen maybe once a month or less but nothing like it is now and I never had all the other symptoms.
Avatar n tn The most common symptoms may include trembling, dyspnea (shortness of breath), heart palpitations, chest pain (or chest tightness), hot flashes, cold flashes, burning sensations (particularly in the facial or neck area), sweating, nausea, dizziness (or slight vertigo), light-headedness, hyperventilation, paresthesias (tingling sensations), sensations of choking or smothering. Some cases of epilepsy have chest pain in the prodromal features or aura features.
Avatar f tn It went away and I went back to feeling normal and now here I am again towards the end of this month and I am experiencing shortness of breath again. I'm probably going to get my period in a week or a week and a half. Again, its not as severe as the first time this happened, but its very annoying and prevents me from sleeping normally. I'm able to get deep breaths in, but I feel like I have to force it frequently. I also feel like I'm breathing faster and more shallow than usual.
Avatar n tn I went to the ER about 5 months ago with shortness of breath, some tightness in chest, warmth and tingling at the back of my head and confusion/dizziness. I underwent an EKG which was normal, bp and pulse were normal for the duration and I was discharged with diagnosis of anxiety, but I think that it was partly a reaction to constant high levels of caffeine. I also had a general physical last winter and all blood work, etc. was normal. I've had a few other episodes like this one since.
Avatar n tn For about 5 months now, I've been having the same problem with the chest tightness, not being able to inhale fully, shortness of breath and constant yawning. I am a 25 yr old female, dont smoke or drink, and try to eat as healthy as possible. At first my doctor said it might be exercise induced asthma, as I started noticing the problem as I worked out more frequently. I was put on the albuterol pump with Nasacort, that didn't help much.

Avatar m tn This along with my muscle pain and weakness with the shortness of breath the doctors think that MS and Late stage Lyme disease might be what I may have. I dont see him for a few weeks and we only spoke over the phone but any others suggestions that go along with my prior symptoms plus low vitamin D (it was 2 was the number on the blood test). Thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn Thought I was having a reaction to her two cats. Dizziness and shortness of breath appeared within 12hrs of arriving there. Stayed outside away from the cats as much as possible, and took Benadryl. Within 30 hrs, I was taken to the ER because I couldnt catch a breath. Also had chest tightness. ER doc gave me Sol-u-Medrol, Prednisone, 50mg Benadryl IV and 3 Albuterol breathing tx. I was realeased 7hrs later. Still had dyspnea but it was about 20% better.
Avatar n tn Hello Everyone, My story is similar to many of the issues I have read on this site. I have been having a tight nerves and pressure on my head. It is specially servere at the top of the head. But, sometimes it seems like something or my nerves is moving from one place to another.
Avatar f tn During the day I have been having times of extreme dizziness where I feel like I am going to faint, Chest pains/Palpatations, shortness of breath, Pain in my back more towards the left side and on occasion pain down the inside of my left arm and tingling in arm or hand. I went to the hospital and had blood work, ekg and chest xray done. All were normal. My blood pressure is normal, my blood sugar is normal. I am being treated for acid reflux.
Avatar n tn -NO pain, just discomfort 3)Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea or shortness of breath. -I have all of the above except shortness of breath and fainting 4)I have tingling feeling around my chest, neck, upper back and shoulders Here is what I have done so far.
Avatar m tn If it continues or is accompanied with shortness of breath, nausea or dizziness then it is worth checking out. What you are describing though sounds more like muscular or even anxiety.
Avatar n tn I have been feeling those three every time i have chest pains. Oh btw the chest pains is like sort of tightness in the center of my chest. I just want to know if those are normal symptoms for those with GERD.
