I am 22 years old student , woman and currently studying in university. Past two day i have been having painful sore throat and dry cough ,in which i took azithromycin which was prescribed by a doctor. Yesterday I have been having sudden chest pain with difficulty in breathing in which i took 2 puffs of salbutamol inhaler but the symptoms persists. I have this pins and needles sensations all over the extremities.
My friends took me to the hospital and the doctor on call examined to find that everything is normal. My vitals are normal and I am just hyperventilating. I was given 1 respule of duolin ( ipratropium bromide) and after an hour or so I was discharged home. However , the tightness in chest kept going on and off , till i was able to sleep it off. I am not under any stress.

Thank you for asking your query.

Dear ,

Looking into the history you have tolod you have been treated appropriately . Pins and needle senasation can occur sometimes after taking salbutamol but that is rare .Tightness in chest may be due to chest infection and congestion.
You can get a chest Xray done , with CBC which i am sure your doctor must have done. Accordingly necessary medications will be prescribed . You dont mention any history of fever which i would like to know .

Stress in young girls may lead to hyperventilation but that only your treating doctor can say after finding all the parameters normal.

If you have any further queries feel free to ask.

Thank you.
