I have been experiencing shortness of breath more frequently lately and excessive sweating even when I m just sitting around. I am a 40 y/o/f, smoke approx 3/4 pack a day, and recently (since February) started working out and running. For the last 2 weeks, on top of these symptoms, I have been extremely tired to the point that I don t feel like working out or doing anything. This afternoon I took a nap. I was woke up in the middle of my nap feeling like I was suffocating. I just couldn t catch my breath. I sat in front of a fan coughing and trying to breathe. Since then I still continue to feel like I can t take a deep breath, I m having heart palpitations, and at times have what I think are chest pains. Sometimes they re sharp and sometimes it just feels like someone is squeezing my chest. Also for the last few days when I breathe, it sounds like I have bubbles when breathing. What could these symptoms mean and should I go to the ED tonight or wait to see my family doctor tomorrow?

I m having a sharpe pain in my trap like someone is stabbing me. Pain is so bad I am sweating uncontrollably. Last night pain moved to my chest and was really intense. Put me to the ground. The pain is mainly back in my trap but still hurts in chest. It really hurts when I couch and breathe. I think I am running a fever bc of the pain.

HI. All my teen years I've never filled out in my clothes. I been worried about this for a long time. I just turned 17 and I have breast..but they are small. I am healing from a chocking phobia- it made me not eat. now im 120. i lost 10 pounds. But now that I'm eating, I still cant fill out. i been wondering if its my acid reflux. everything i eat churns and cramps in my stomach. i always get bloaded. I am very depressed in all aspects, especially when the younger people make fun of me or act like they are better just because they are more filled out. I also have hyperhidrosis.. I feel so different from everyone else. is something stopping me from gaining weight
