So lately I've been feeling out of breath. When I go for a jog or lift weight vigorously my throat swells(sensation) difficulty swallowing, can't catch my breath and difficulty breathing. Ive had numerous studious done. Literally almost every heart test and every came back clear. Dr put me on Albuterol but still nothing crazy. I did notice that in one occasion I walked into a store and smelled a perfume and bang I felt like crap, my heart started racing I couldn't breathe . Guys this is really making my life a struggle please help with some advice.
Oh and I was also diagnosed with Turbinate Hypertrophy.

Hi Rick,

Do you have allergies? I have multiple chemical sensitivity, might you have that? I don't do well around perfume either.

I was diagnosed with allergic asthma years ago but inhalers never have helped me, they just make me jittery. I was told by a holistic doctor to stay away from dairy products because they produce excess phlegm. Conventional doctors will also say to stay away from dairy products when you have a cold.

Maybe you're experiencing some food sensitivities and you're having a reaction. We need to be our own best detectives sometimes.

Concerning the Turbinate Hypertrophy, is that like a deviated septum? If so, I had surgery done on my deviated septum and afterwards I felt like I was put on oxygen, i could breathe through my nose so much better.

Good luck to you.

Possibly
I also noticed that one day when I was Moving to a new home I was Exposed To dust And Had some streaks of Blood in phlegm.
I had Milk And Greek Yogurt so maybe.

And its similar to a deviated septum they share symptoms. Feels like i Cant really breathe usually since I haven't had the Surgery yet

Hi Rick,

The surgery for me was a very easy process.

Hi Rick,

It felt as if I couldn't breathe very well through my nose. For years I thought it was just difficult for me to breathe well through my nose. I had no idea what a deviated septum was.

Immediately following waking up after the surgery, I recall telling the nurse that I felt as if I was put on oxygen. I don't recall any after effects or pain from the surgery.
