I had an episode last night of fairly severe chest and back pain with difficulty breathing. My chest felt tight and my throat felt tight and kind of like it was burning.
This lasted for a bit over an hour, when I took some benedryl and went into my room, which has an air purifier. I spent much more of my day yesterday upstairs in the house, and my mom smokes up there and the pets live up there.
I'm wondering if this could be caused by any of the drugs I'm taking, though the fact that I felt much better around an air purifier makes me doubt it. I'm also slightly worried it could be asthma (family history) or a severe allergic reaction. I know penicillin makes me anaphalactic but I was too young to remember what it feels like.
Any thoughts? I'm pretty worried.
