Okay so for the past few months I've been having problems breathing,it started out being only whenever I smoked but now I wake up and feel like I can't breath,I went to the doctor and after having a X-ray of my lungs he said I was fine and it was probably just anxiety. I told him it wasn't and asked him to give me something so he gave me an inhaler but sadly that doesn't help. It feels like my throat is closing,I have problems swallowing and it's hard for me to breath. Any help? I know it's not anxiety cause I get anxiety while I can't breath. I literally feel like I'm dying and that doctor just tried to push me away please helpppp.

Okey I'm going through the same thing. Haven't smoked in like five days breathing got better. Also when u can't breath u start getting anxiety even more. It's like fuel. Don't smoke. Practice on ur breathing and try using ur diaphragm. Also have did u start maybe excericeing lately?
