Everytime I breath the air sort of gets caught in every second breath or so and causes me to make this loud noise

This has been going on for probably 2 years now. Like, everytime I breath the air sort of gets caught in every second breath or so and causes me to make this loud noise, that people even notice when they are beside me, its weird! I haven t seen a doctor about it yet, I just want to be sure first.

see a doctor, but it does sound more lung related.

I am having an odd breathing issue. While I am able to actually breathe in and out fine, I am constantly having this forced need to make this odd rumbling in my throat. Sometimes it is a deep grating rumble, sometimes it is a more sharp, higher pitched beep of sorts. If I focus on not doing it, I can hold off for several minutes, but otherwise it is a constant occurance, happening after few seconds. While not painful, it is extremely irritating. It has been ongoing for about 2 - 3 weeks.

i m 16 and i ve been tested negative for asthma but i have trouble breathing. i don t smoke or anything that would cause breathing issues. i m always trying to catch my breath. even when i m breathing it feels like im holding my breath and when i finally catch my breath i feel better for a few seconds then have to catch my breath again. this is constantly going on but there are some moments when its much worse than usual. when i move my upper body side to side it makes a loud scratchy sound and its painful. this has progressively gotten worse ever since i got a cold two years ago. what could be wrong?

I am 18, 5 7 and around 120+lbs (haven t weighed myself in a while) with no medical history of any diseases or alergies even. For a while now (i think around a year or more) I have had trouble breathing. In the beginning it was merely shortness of breath for a few minutes and then it would pass, but it is happening all the time now to the point where it barely ever stops. It basically feels like i cannot get enough air into my lungs or breath deeply and my heart race increases to the point where i can feel it through my stomach and throat as well as my chest. Also, a while ago I was outside and got these symptoms at which point my eyes went black and i could literally see nothing (despite it being the middle of summer and daylight outside) and i could not tell which way was up so when trying to find a chair through the sightlessness I hit my head on a treebranch and fell (my mom caught me before i hit the ground) at which point i heard a loud ringing in my ears and could no longer hear anything. After a few minutes i regained my sight and hearing and after going to the doctors she said it sounded like i couldnt get oxygen to my brain and so i passed out (kinda). She sent me for various tests (heart and lungs) but everything came back normal. I have no idea what is wrong but it seems to be worsening and its not stress becuase i m under no stress and i didn t get it during exams or anything stressful like that. What is wrong with me?

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.
