so growing up i've had VERY minor asthma, i had abuteral when I was playing sports, but really didn't need it ever. Sometimes I have allergies, and little minor things, but so small it was nothing really worrying to much about. Well I'm almost 21, and I've always been kinda a party girl, not bad but I loved to drink on weekends, all thru highschool, vodka especially.. I drank a lot good tolerance for not a huge person, which isn't anything to be proud of, however, I moved away with my boyfriend, and November-January I drank quite a bit! then one day I couldn't breath when I was drinking, and it sucked, i got thru it it wasn't like an "anxiety" attack tho, it was almost as if i had to yawn to try to get a deep relaxing breath, I couldn't do it any other way. it was really uncomfortable. I thought it may be my back needing to pop, my heart, i went thru so many things. I woek up one night not drinking to feeling uncomfortable with my breathing, i took like 4 puffs of my abuteral because i thought maybe thats what it was, it iddn't work infact it made my heart beat crazy fast and then went to the emergency room. they did NOTHING for me, charged me 1,000 dollars tho for some blood testing to say i didn't have blood clots if it keeps happening come back.? Who knows, so anyway it did keep happening, sometimes for 5 days at a time it felt like I couldn't breath, i thoguht i was going to die in my sleep, i was stressing out abou tit, getting frustrated because i just couldn't get that deep relaxing breath, no matter how many times and ways i tried it. I finally went to the dr even without insurance because it was killing me, i stoopped drinking for 7 months now, cuz everytime i would it would start being all uncomfortable and annoying. So the dr didn't wanna do huge tests because of no insurance and me having to pay out the butt, but he said that he is pretty sure its asthma that may be triggered to heart burn so he gave me sample medication of 2 enhalors and heart burn medicine. steroid enhalor and an abuteral again, so i've been taking it as directed but it still happens, and sometimes I feel just crazy like its all in my mind, but its so weird!! It's almost my 21 birthday and i want to go out again, anyone has had this happen to them PLEASE write me, if you could write to, thanks!!!!!! i need someone who is going or has gone thru this before to help!! I hate limiting my life and fun for this stupid stuff!

Sounds like you need to find a good Doctor, try going to an asthma/allergy doctor for help. If the asthma/allergy doctor can't help then they will tell you, hun........Good luck to you and keep us posted okay. This is just advice!
