    Really scared and depressed..

    Iíve had shortness of breath off and on since around 2015 thatís just gotten worse and worse.. The past month has been really bad Iíve been feeling really suffocated and every breath feels like itís a task and Iím always focused on my breathing.... I had a pulmonary function test last year that was basically normal and I had an echo done last month which read was normal but they couldnít calculate my pulmonary pressures which would tell if I had pulmonary hypertension which Iíve been worried about causing my shortness of breath. I have a stress test Thursday which Iím terrified to even do because I get out of breath so easy.

    Also most of you know I have a Chiari Malformation which Iíve read could cause shortness of breath. I donít know if itís the chiari or pulmonary hypertension or something... I did go to the er last night where they did an X-ray, EKG, and blood work which was all pretty much normal but my breathing is so bad Iím so terrified :(

    Iíve also noticed my respiratory rate being a lot lower. A normal respiratory rate is like 12-20 I noticed mine as low as 8 at the hospital last night.. So scared Iím close to respiratory failure or something :( Does it sound like it could be Neurologic or pulmonary hypertension?

    Not a nurse, but as someone with breathing issues if it was really that bad then you would not have been allowed to leave.

    Also not a nurse, but Iím in agreement to what utrocket just said, if it was truly something concerning, they would not have let you leave the hospital. Your tests came back fine, you must trust your doctors

    That, and its been two hours and several panicked posts seeking reassurance in the same pattern you typically exhibit. If it truly was that serious, you would have already been back at the ER. I am curious though... it's been two months since your last thread. What have you done during that time to quell the dragon?
