Scared about my breathing but not sure what to doWatch this thread
There is one newish symptom that scares me though - over the past several months at times my nose can feel that swollen/blocked that it causes a tight feeling in my throat. Or my nose can feel clear but a tightness in the nasopharynx(upper throat behind the nostrils) feels tight.
I find it quite disturbing as I always worry that if the same tightness occured in my lower airway I wouldn’t be able to breath. In fact I worry that it will spread to my lower airway as my dad developed asthma in middle age after having polyps when he was younger
I’ve been to the gp/spoken to the ENT in a telephone appointment and I’m awaiting a appointment/camera up in September lol
I’ve been to the gp since this nurse saw me who seemed annoyed, said it’s not urgent and that i’l have it the rest of my life. In fact she asked me if I had covid and that she was clinically vulnerable lol. She did prescribe me a salbutamol inhaler though even though I don’t have asthma (not yet anyway)
As it’s happening quite often (a tight feeling behind my nostrils) even when my nose is clear I just worry that it will impact my breathing all of a sudden
Just wanted to share I guess I’m not sure what advice anyone can really offer. Should I carry the salbutamol inhaler just in case?
Does anyone experience anything similar
ok not rejected but this person is claiming a nurse basically gave them attitude and said her condition wasn't urgent and not a proper resolution - really im not trying to start smth rn but if u dont want to see this persons posts block them because i find this post very useful as it is raising awareness
