I was in the Rocky Mountains skiing & experienced a shortness of breath & shallow breathing. I attributed it to the altitude. Now, I m back home. I have a pressure or heaviness in my chest & trouble or shortness of breath. I no longer have a cough but my sinuses are stuffed . My cough was severe but never spit up blood. I am 51 years old, great cardiovascular shape, healthy diet and low cholesterol. I am currently taking 75 mg of Cymbalta & 10 mg of Lexapro for primary depression. This is NOT new.

I ve had trouble breathing for awhile now. I am a 15 year old female and I might have precordial catch syndrome, but I am not 100% sure. I get the occasional stabbing pain in the left side of my chest. It last for a few minutes and it sometimes feels better if I apply pressure. other times, the pain is not intense and it hurts for a longer period of time. another problem I experience is trouble breathing. I find myself taking a deep breath every few minutes. I do this because I feel like it is impossible to get air without taking a deep breath. It almost feels like there is a huge bubble in my chest, keeping me from breathing, and when I take a deep breath, it allows enough air to satisfy me for a few minutes. Then the same problem happens again. This is really annoying, painful and kind of scary. I feels like my chest will suddenly close up, making it impossible to breath. Please help!

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
