Hello, my name is Cameron, age 16, and I just registered at this forum. It seems like a good place. First, I'll discuss my past. I have been a smoker for 2 years, cigarettes and, up until a couple weeks ago, marijuana. I've quit because of my symptoms and the fact that smoking weed isn't worth the risks. It may be worthy to note that I tried (and never again will try) LSD a couple months ago, and ever since then have been having panic attacks almost daily, although I generally am able to keep them under control.

For the past month or so, I've been having a lot of trouble breathing. My mom seems to think it's allergies, but this is the first year I've ever had such a thing. I would like to go to a doctor, but we have no health insurance.

I have a constant shortness of breath, and I feel the constant need to burp. Sometimes I get really light headed and it scares me. My heart begins to beat very quickly and I get a tight chest. Mentally, I feel like I'm starting to lose my mind and am losing reality. It's really scary, and almost feels like I'm going to die.

I really have no idea what this could be. I've been searching through these forums, and have found several people with some of my symptoms, but not all of them. I have posted this in this category because I believe most of this is related to difficulty breathing.

If any advice could be given, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

*Edit: I forgot to mention that I hardly ever get deep breaths, and attempt to yawn, but it isn't a full breath either. When I do get a full breath, I generally experience chest pains.

Also, I have trouble going to sleep because of a fear of dying in my sleep from my getting enough breath.
