Difficulty in breathing, yawn to get required oxygen, have intense headaches, clicking in head. Any thoughts?

I cant seem to get a full breath. I do an unatural amount of yawning to feel like Im getting the oxygen I need. Or I take a very deep and concentrated breath. Its really uncomfotable and bothers other people. Ive also been experiencing bad headaches and theres a clicking sound coming from my head. Id go see a docter but I dont really feel comfotable when people touch me. My parents also dont think anything of it. They think Im over egxaderuating (sorry for the missplelling). They smoke so I think it may be because of the smoke. Any thoughts?

Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

We cannot say much with only your presentation and need to examine you to reach a diagnosis (which could be an infection, obstruction, etc), if there is any. If you do feel the discomfort, before ruling it as a mannerism or a psychological requirement, we need to rule out all possibilities of an infection.

As you do not like doctors or anybody else touching you, I would advise you to first get a chest x-ray done, and once the film is ready, take it to a doctor who will examine the film and search for any abnormalities.

The next thing the doctor would do, is to place a stethoscope on your chest, to listen to your lung (auscultation), this helps in localizing any source.

Do not fear the doctors, as they are only here to help relieve you of your discomfort. I am sure your condition can be cured. All you need to do is 'help us, to help you'.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
