I don't know quite how to explain it but it feels like it is hard to get air in. We have two children who are asthmatic and one child who has reactive airway disease so I am familiar with wheezing. I don't feel like I'm having an astmha attack. I'm pressing around my chest, it's not tender. If it was, then I would know that my costochondritis is acting up. I have an appointment with the pain clinic tommorrow and I will definitely bring this up because honestly I have been dealing with annoying, nagging feeling for about a month now. (I know, I know, I should have been to the doctor about it). It's like I have to force myself to take a really deep breath to get air in, but as I take the air it really, really, really, really, hurts. because of the scoliosis and the spinal stenosis. I see a new PCP, actually she is a ANP, but I will ask to get referred to a orthopedic doctor.
I am afraid that due to my compromised breathing that they may want to do surgery for my scoliosis/spinal stenosis. If so, they will have to take a number. Ugggghhhh, I'm 38 and I feel like I'm 83.
