Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index

I am a 36 year old male and for about 2 years now I have had trouble getting a full deep breath. Some times are worse than others and the only way I usually feel like I get a satisfying breath is at the end of a good yawn.Sometimes I get so embarrased in public when someone catches me with my mouth wide open trying to MAKE myself yawn. I dont have any cough or phlem with this problem,no pain,I dont wheeze or crackle when I breath,just a terrifying feeling of not being able to get a full breath. Of corse this causes me to panic and im sure this adds to my trouble breathing.When this first started happening I went to the ER and my oxygen sat was like 98%. When I told the nurse I was having trouble breathing she said "your oxygen lvl is high, your breathing fine, it just feels like you cant breath. The ER took an X-Ray of my chest to make sure there wasent any obstructions and sent me home with an inhaler and a few valium and wrote it off as anxiety.I smoked 2 packs of ciggs a day for 20 years and just recently (Thank God for Chantix) was able to quit smoking. I expect serious damage has been done to my lungs.Would any smoking related illness look like this? I know people with bad COPD.I also know people with bad emphaseyma and all of them have cough, congestion, phlem, or they can only walk short distances. I can jog a mile.Im out of breath of corse but I can do it. The only symptom I have is SOB. I am currently without insurance so when I do finally get to the Drs office I want them to do as few tests as possible so if anyone has had similar symptoms and been diagnosed or if anyone has any possibilitys of what this may be Id appreciate the help,advice,simalar problems, or any info you could give me. Thanks. God Bless All Of You.
