Godsgal Posted June 13, 2011 Report Share Posted June 13, 2011 So a lot of you know I have the mast cell disease. One problem that I can't seem to wrap my head around that kinda scares me is these weird breathing issues I have. With any kind of physical activity, I get shortness of breath. No wheezing, no panting, it's just a heaviness in my chest almost like I'm not getting enough oxygen when I breathe in. It's nothing anyone can hear, it's something I feel. Maybe even a heaviness with a little burning in my lungs. It definitely get's worse if I run into something that triggers me (chemicals, fragrances, smells, etc.) But I get it just randomly too. And singing or reading books to my son is definitely problematic and it aggravates it. Now the real clencher for me is that I take Singulair 10 mg twice a day and I feel like that should be taking this away. But nope. I still have it. Perhaps not as bad as I used to have it but I definitely still have it too much for taking that amount of medicine. What's the deal? Am I taking the wrong meds? I have had 3 chest x-rays and a breathing function test. Nothing showed up.I asked Dr. Afrin about Churg strauss and he said I didn't have it......now he is an incredibly smart doctor but I just worry about it which I should not be doing. Any thoughts?
