Shortness of breath 24/7, kindly help

Shortness of breath 24/7 need help where to go next For the past 6-8 months I have been having shortness of breath. I did the following tests: Ectocardiogram, Blood test , lung-xray, melacholnine challenge testing, pulmonary function tests and thats about it. They were all clear and then I was ruled out with anxiety . My shortness of breath was lasting every day 24/7 and only about 1/3 of the breaths I took in felt full and satisfying. After visiting the psychologist I got some medication and did it for a month but nothing. I am not a anxious person so I didn t believe this would be it. I have been suffering and searching on the internet asking others what Can i do? Can you please give me some help?

Hello.welcome.If all the tests pertaining to your heart and lungs are normal then it means there is no PHYSICAL disease.Whatever is happening it because of your stress or anxiety.You must visit some other psychiatrist and take those sessions and medicines religiously.You will definitely be alright.Good luck.

Hi well come to HCM.
Since of the required test for heart and lung you have performed and nothing out of
it. So better you get done your ENT check up if not satisfied with diagnosis of anxiety
to rule out any obstructive lesion in nose like polyp or DNS. Thanks
