... Thanks for letting me know! I hope it's allergies too... Did you have any allergy like symptoms while you had a hard time breathing/chest pain? (11 replies)
... I went and got a chest x-ray, nothing. The dr thought it could be a pulmonary embolism, so I got checked for that, and it was negative. I finally went to an allergist. Turns out that I just have really terrible allergies. My sinuses were basically constantly draining (gross, I know), and because i was having such a hard time breathing, it was basically straining my rib muscles... (11 replies)

... hey- I have pretty much the exact same symptoms as you...everything that you mentioned is happening to me as well. Did you ever find out what was wrong?? I've been struggling with this for over five months, and like you I used to be very active but now I can barely do anything.

... Agree that the first step is to demand a chest xray. The trouble swallowing and pain in the sternum, along with the shortness of breath, sounds a lot like me two years ago. ... (11 replies)
... chest, and I can't breathe. It feels as though my throat starts to constrict and I start swallowing a lot more often, like I can't stop because I am trying to get air. I yawn really often because it feels like this is the only way I can ever get a good breath. ... (11 replies)

... Well, just to keep this thread alive I figured I'd update that I've still been spending most of my time in a place where I pretty much don't have trouble breathing and when I occasionally venture outside I haven't had any trouble breathing. ... (34 replies)

... Well, I realized that the dairy was probably temporarily reducing my GERD levels and still believe that the GERD might be behind all of my breathing problems. I quickly got tired of the dairy and switched to Tums. ... (34 replies)
... Funny...I posted this in 2009. I still can't breath and have been scanned from head-toe, MRI's, CT scans, sonograms, thyroid tests, pulmonary function test...the works.

I was on... (34 replies)

I had about three doctors, One told me this is not a big problem, the other to see a psychiatrist because he said its probably anxiety and the other the same. I dont experience Aches and Pains though. (6 replies)
... Hi again Nemm. Your list of symptoms sounds very much like some autoimmune diseases to me. I say that because I myself have a diagnosis of mixed/overlapping connective tissue disease and rheumatoid arthritis and a strong indication of Sjogren's (sp?) Disease. All of these diseases and syndromes can have symptoms like trouble breathing, muscle/joint aches and pains,... (6 replies)
... I can't really speak to the rash, but the pain in the sternum, problems swallowing, and the breathing difficulties could all be symptoms of sarcoidosis. Then again, the tick bite could be to blame. You need to get more testing. ... (1 replies)
