I occasionally have something that makes breathing very difficult. It feels like there is a film or somethig lodged in my throat when this occurs. I do have allergy problemswhich makes me very congested. Does this sound like asthma or emphysema? I do not smoke. Is there anything available at a low cost that may help me? I do not have insurance. Any thoughts?
Princessmary3000 - Wile doing a test with a breathing machine it felt like someone was holding my through when I inhaled. I found out I may have vocal cord dysfunction (VCD), which means my throat closes instead of opens when I inhale. I never would have suspected it. It can cause difficulty breathing like you described. I would look VCD up on the Web to see if you may have it as well. One informative site is http://cantbreathesuspectvcd.com/. Good luck.
