Breathing issues - January 31st 2013, 02:45 AM

So for the past couple of weeks I've been having issues breathing. When I breathe through my nose it feels like Im not getting any oxygen. I get this feeling like when you hold your breath and then your body forces you to breathe,it just feels like I'm not getting any air. When I take a deep breath it feels as if I had just cried for hours and my chest is all heavy (sorry if that is confusing). A few weeks ago it started out not too bad, but when I was playing basketball and running I realized my breathing got uncontrollable really quick, as if I had been running for hours but I had only been running for minutes.
Also, my heart gets these weird moments when it starts beating really quick when I'm sitting down, this happens at least once a day.

I don't really know what could have caused this...unless overdosing on Aleve and Advil can cause this.

Just wanted to know if anyone has ever had this happen before.

When I'm sad I think, "I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt!"

You can't change fate, but you can change your attitude towards it.

Taking too much of a medication can have unwanted effects on your body. Your body needs to find ways to either store or expel the excess substance you place in your body and that has a negative impact on the regular functions of various systems. I'm not sure if that's what's causing you these problems or if you're becoming sick. I would go to your doctor and explain what's been going on. They'll probably want to run some tests to see if you have some sort of respiratory infection or something like asthma.
They'll probably also want to make sure you haven't done any serious permanent damage to your body by overdosing.

No matter what you should go to your doctor and get some tests done.

I've had this before. Not being able to breathe through my nose and having problems breathing and I saw my doctor and was referred to the Asthma nurse and found out I have asthma (which was causing the problems with breathing) and that I also had rhinitis which is I think an inflammation in the nose (which made it VERY hard for me to breathe through my nose) Now I'm on two inhalers and a nasal spray as well as cream for the nose. If you (or a family member) struggle with eczema too it can be related to Asthma. They're both in the same family.

It might be something completely different but thought I'd tell you my experience. If it continues and you're worried about it, i suggest you see your GP. It could be nothing, could be something.
