Anyone ever get this when you're not having a p/a?

Btw-yes I do have reg check-ups,and consider myself fairly healthy... so far so good.

I have this almost every day not just with PA but with the health anxieties I have, I say to myself breath in breath out drives me crazy but it will go away again when something else comes along to take it's place, I also have a bad habit of blowing on things to see if I can make them move lol sounds so crazy but I figure if I can make that curtain move then I am breathing, i blow at my husband he just says now YES I can feel it, I feel so stupid doing these things.

Ok, the reason I ask is b/c I had a hyster back in June. I had an epi(spinal tap/anest) but then the last 10 minutes they put me completely under. They avoided doing general anesthesia b/c I had a slight cold at the time. For a few months after that I could still feel fluid in my lungs when I breathed, it went away, but came back and is back sporadically. Sometimes I notice it once a month, with a few breaths(but then afetr a few deep breaths i no longer feel it) sometimes once a week. This morning I still feel it after a few repetitive breaths and it's kinda worrying me. I have no cough with it at all, so not like I can cough it up.

Anyway, I used to get shortness of breath before this,and had chest xrays, everything was fine. My mistake was googling fluid in the lungs and I got a crud load of lung cancer pop ups, and of course that and the shortnes of breath(which i had before, and everything checked out fine) so that combined...

More of a rattling feeling than anything else

Anyway I don't smoke and am not near smoke so statistaclly my chances are slim...still worrisome.

I know i know make a dr. apt lol!

ETA-now it's gone again. Strange.

i have this everyday. i don't know if it is anxiety cause it's been going on for years and my lower left pelvis is swollen/lopsided. It's been 6 years. i also have stomach pain and have to push on my abdomen to get a good breath.

I suffer from that - I was actually diagnosed with asthma but I was a bit dubious after a while and decided to stop all my asthma meds to see what would happen (by the way NEVER STOP MEDS WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR DOC FIRST , I didn't but I rarely take my own advise nono ) anyway.....nothing happened , it was panic not asthma.

Yep, I get this when I'm really anxious.  I feel like my throat has clsed over and I'm going to pass out.  I just try and focus my attention elsewhere or If it's really bad I take a low dose of Valium.  It's still always good to check with your doc tho...(and stay away from medical websites!!!!) lol

Yes, almost every day. It feels like someone is sitting on my chest and I can't get a full breath. It's worse when I'm anxious and panicy but it's always there. It isn't much fun.
