Pain breathing in the morning?

m_gal posted:
As i've been growing up I thought it was normal to wake up with this pain. Almost every morning I sleep longer than 5 hours I extremely hurts to breathe when I wake up. I don't think it's my chest it feels like my lungs just kill when they expand and such when i breathe in the morning. Also when I breathe in deeply it really hurts. I've been diagnosed with POTS and not sure if this had anything to do with it? thanks. (Im a 15 year old female)

Hi:

Have you discussed this with your doctor?

"I've been diagnosed with POTS and not sure if this had anything to do with it?"


Anything medical is seemingly possible today.

Best of luck down the road of life. Live long and prosper.
