For 2 months now I've been feeling like I can't get a full breath (I know that I'm getting enought oxygen because it's been checked but I can't get a full satisfying breath) and I have chest pain between my breast and on the left side near my collar bone.
I've been to several doctors. All of them keep telling me it's probably anxiety. This last one is sending me to a cardiologist but that's not until next week.
I've taken the anxiety meds and they do not help. I've had an EKG, full blood work up and a chest x-ray. Everything comes back normal.
I have been under stress but can stress cause CONSTANT shortness of breath and chest pains for 2 months????
I was kind of under the impression that anxiety attacks come and go...not stick around for months at a time.
Anyone been through this? Any insight?
