Feel stressed, shortness of breath, stomach tight. What could be cause? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you ?
hello doctor. so i am a university student and i have been through this situation before. so sometimes when i am stressed (and i don't notice that i am stressed) i feel short of breath and feel my stomach tight. i know that it is due to stress but sometimes my stress is unconscious .is there something i can do with that? i put my hand in my stomach and i breathe normally. Also , i noticed this when i am studying and i have it now. i feel sharp pains in my brain/head
and i feel my head really tight
May I know your age and gender ?
i am 20 years old and female
my blood tests are fine and as far as i know i am healthy
Ok, is there any relation between the symptoms you have and the monthly menstrual cycles ?
no i have normal menstrual cycles. i had my last menstruation a week ago and it was on the normal days
Ok, do you get palpitations when you get above symptoms ?
and my hands shake when i feel short of breath but it is because i feel scared. the pain on my head is not associated with my shortness of breath because i had it even when i was not stressed having those breath problems
ok, i see it to be due to lone stress but not associated with any systemic diseases, the best treatment for such a problem is breathing exercises
but when i have the "brain" pain i feel my head really tight. i had the pain half an hour ago it was just for a second and now i feel my head so tense
what can i do
Breathing exercises like PRANAYAMA ( Indian origin )
along with yoga
It is the best and very effective natural measure for such stress related nervousness
are we sure that it is not a problem related to neurological factors?
No, neurological problems most of times are not associated with palpitations instead will be associated with symptoms related to memory , bowel bladder control
so there is no need to take an axonic tomography
No , as for now
If you develop any symptoms in autonomic nervous system there may be a need\
