When I was 7 years old I have pneumonia and I was hospitalized for a while. I couldn't walk, move, do hygiene, sleep and I felt sharp pains every where and was wheezing very badly. I had done some research once I got a lot older and had read that pneumonia can lead to copd. I have the hardest time doing simple task. I'm worn out and can't breath after walking up 2 steps of stairs, bicycling is hard to do. I can't even go 3 minutes without trying to get a breath of air but I cant. My grandmother is a nurse but I rarely ever see her and I'm just as scared to ask her as I am to ask you folks. My anxiety and panic attacks don't help much either. I've had them a lot lately and it's had me gasping and wheezing terribly.
I have a terrible cough and my parents just say that I'm congested but I differ. If I was, then how could I still be congested a month and a half later? Inhaling and exhaling takes a little bit more force than what it should.
Anyways, I've gone to the doctor and told him many times im still have a difficult time breathing. He checks my lungs with the stethoscope and doesn't do anything about it.
I'm just really worried that something is wrong with my breathing because if there is then I would like something to help me cope with it.
If anyone is able to help me, I want to thank you for taking the time out of your day to help me out. - Hannah
