Hi my name is Eric im 27 years old, I had a tooth infection and went to a lot of dentists, none of them took my obama care, anyways, i went to the ER, this was in February, a couple months ago, they gave me penicillin and i took it for i think 2 days, and it made me really sick but took away the horrible pain, so i stop taking it, anyways just recently like a week 1/2 ago, the terrible tooth ache came back, just like the first time, and i couldnt bare it, i went to the pharmacy to get oragel, which didnt work, i told the pharmacist about the penicillin that i had still, he said take it, so i did, took away the pain, but it made me very sick again, like ugh!!! so i stopped, i only took it one day. 3 times that day, every 8 hours. and a day after, i was hyper ventilating and i was taking a lot of deep breaths, rest asure i have had very bad anxiety and panic attacks in the past, and i dont know if this was the cause of it, maybe i had anxiety to the point i got sick and dizzy off the penicillin, but anyways, its been almost a week that i stopped taking the penicillin, i feel sick to my stomach at times, i have on going sick feeling in my chest, i get a pain in the left side of my chest, not necessary where the heart is, but in the breast, and sometimes i get it on the right side, but mainly more on the left side, and after i stopped that penicillin, i was so sick from it, i did pushups to try to boost up my immune system, i did a lot, and repetitive that day and the next day, rest asure, ive beem stressed out also, i have 2 dogs and im new to the area in sacramento, my unemployment stopped, so i cant pay rent, and i dont have any family, and i dont know anyone here. and the only family i had was my ex gf which we became friends stopped talking to me, that really hurt me, i dont have a vehicle to do anything, and i have a high matabolism, and i stress out when i lose weight also, and thats whats been happening. im just in a lost cause right now, dont know what to do.

Hi, randomly one time it got hrd for me to breathe and it happened 3 times that day. Also, when i was all worked up, someone told me it was my turn to go on stage, and i couldnt breathe and was breathing heavy. This happened 2 other times, one over a test, and one over the idea of mentoring. This i not a problem of being old because i am 13 almost 14 years old. The most recent breakdown i had, before that i had such bad worry and it was terrible how badly i was worrying and when i tried to talk about it, i had a breakdown . the idea of me feeling weak and hopeless makes me have a weird feeling. Im not depressed though, im a happy person, im just worried a lot, mostly over things ive done before.
