Ok, this is weird.

I don't feel anxious at all. I haven't lifted anything heavy recently, but I feel like I cannot breathe. My shoulders are sore, but I am not having a heart attack. What could this be?

  • How do you know if you are havinga heart attack or not. You can't tell yourself and it is the number one cause of death in women. If you think there is any remote chance you are having a heart attack, call 911 and go to the ER. Better safe than sorry.

  • Not breathing is bad. It could be a blood clot in your lung. My husband has nearly died from blood clots in his lungs twice, and the second time, having a difficult time breathing was his only symptom.
