Heavy chest breathing.

When I’m having a very hard time breathing, my chest is so heavy, has anyone else felt like this? My DR. said he don’t know what I’m talking about.

    Hi Lyn,
    If your doctor doesn’t seem to know you are entitled to a second opinion and in the meantime, Leon has given you some great articles to read.

    Hi again, Lyn. Just like your other post, your physician really should be the one to respond and explain this to you. If you’re not satisfied with this seeming inability to manage your condition with you, perhaps it’s time to look for another, more compassionate and understanding doctor.
