Default Breathing Issues

I have been having breathing issues. Nothing terrible but it is definitely noticeable.

When I'm talking I some times have to stop mid sentence and take in another breath. It's like I run out of air. And it's starting to happen more frequently.

I'll mention it to my Neuro at my next appt (in April) but if it gets worse before then I'll call him.

Most sx I can handle but breathing problems sort of bother me just a teensey bit more.

Has anybody had this sx with MS and what did you do?

I've had it before but I don't know if it was related to MS. I hope yours is nothing serious.

Kitty I have had it when I get the MS hug. Nothing helps when I have the hug. My worst one was before I diagnosed.

Does it feel like there a band around your chest?

Question is it around the new drug your on?

If it continues I would call primary and nero. Have you team help you.

I hope it goes away.

Hi Kitty.

Has your breathing improved? I had experienced breathing issues similar to yours, mine ended up being Asthma.

Snoopy, it's about the same. I don't really think about it until it happens....but I've noticed it quite a few times here lately.

It happened just yesterday when I was talking to my DIL and she said she noticed it when it happened. It was like I had run out of air and had to stop and refuel. I'm not short of breath any other time....just when I'm talking. Maybe I just talk too much.

I haven't started the new med......long but aggravating story. So it's not that. I haven't had the hug in a long time. I guess it's time for the Neuro to figure it out because I sure can't.

Well one I understand that long painful story about a new meds. I hope that clears up for you. As for the breathing you need to see primary doc first as it may not be MS related. Also not let the primary put it off as MS related. Tell the you already been to the Nero. We all need to remember they work for us not the other way around. I sure hope you get better.

Kitty, please see your PCP or if you don't need a referral, a Pulmonologist. You should probably have your Lung Function checked. MS can certainly affect lung function. Your Neurologist would probably just refer you to a Pulmonologist.

A pulmonologist was the first specialist I was referred to due to breathing issues along with chest x-rays.

Thanks, ya'll. I've got some calls lined up for tomorrow morning. Plus, my PCP's nurse practitioner sees me every Monday so I will bring it up to her again.
