I am 25 now. When i was 17 i woke up unable to breathe i had a bronchial spasm turned into panic attack my mom gave me my sisters inhaler an i was "unable to breathe again" for a week after this i felt like i had just run a mile. The doctors found nothing. In 2015 i woke up one day unable to breathe. I had to take a deep breathe in between every word. I went to my aunts house with my daughter so i could go to the doctor. When i arrived there it was a little to late. I collapsed an passed out an had convulsions. I was unresponsive for 20 mins. The paramedics stabilized me an said i had a bronchial spasm. Now im 2016 about a month ago i couldnt breathe. I went in numerous times. It was to the point i was put on nebulizer (every 4 hours or i couldnt breathe) prednisone, an in haler 5 times a day 2 pumps each time, an a z pack. After 2 weeks of thi i could breathe again. If i missed one neb treatment including at night id wake up coughing attack unable to stop until i did one. The doctors said i dont have asthma an cant seem to give me an answer.
imagirl009; are you taking any other medications other than what your doctor is giving you now,You don't want to mix any medications with what the doctor gives you without the doctor knowing. The Z-pak would not have helped if you were not sick or have an infection in your lungs.This could be many different things when you have a hard time breathing it can also bring on anxiety and that makes the breathing harder because you are worried about it. If this just happens every few years it could be a bad allergic reaction or allergies.If the doctor you're seeing now can't find out what is causing this you might think about seeing a breathing doctor or an allergist doctor and see if they can figure out what is going on. There is nothing wrong with getting another doctor's opinion, You don't want to have to keep going through this. Think about it and good luck Chuck1957
