Has anyone ever heard of excessive sighing, like a very dramatic sigh, a loud shuddering sigh, on and off all day? It's been driving me crazy! I am in limboland, so I am trying to keep it together.
Anyway, it's like the hiccups, it's very annoying. It just happens no warning. I am driving my family crazy, cause they are loud. I found a forum for ms that says that excessive sighing and hiccups are a symptom of ms. I do also have asthma since birth, but never had this happen to me before.
It started about a year and a half ago, happened once in a while and continually got worse. Anyway, just another symptom to add to my list. Can't wait to find out the end result.
A new symptom every week. So if anyone out there who can relate to this, really annoying new bodily noise, please, please, tell me I am not alone, and I can tell my hubby SEE! I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE BABE. SO THERE! I CAN'T HELP IT! Thanks Guys! Sandie
Have you ever been told that it is a symptom of ms? I did read on a medical ms forum, under I think breathing problems, shortness of breath, chest pain, hiccups, excessive sighing, and a couple of other symptoms, were of ms.
I really have to start that timeline with my symptoms, before my appt. something new all the time? I'm undx,are you dx yet?
I dunno if I'd call it involuntary sighing... But I have a frequent symptom of being short of breath, and the only way I have of dealing with it is to take several deep breaths. I also have this weird thing my diaphragm and lungs do... Hard to describe - but it's a cross between a hiccup and a wheeze.
I also have frequent hiccups - extremely annoying!
Have you ever mentioned it to your neuro and if so what did they say?
I am undx, and the sighing has been going on for about a year and a half. I just never thought anything of it cause it started out just once in a while.
Just recently last 6 months my hubby started to complain about it, said it was annoying. he he
Well that's when I really started to take notice of it. Now it occurs all day on and off everyday. Can't pinpoint why. Sometimes it happens 6-8 times within an hour. I started stuttering last week also. Been tons of stress lately, so maybe symptoms escalating. IF I were dx with ms, would this be the norm where symp would get worse and new ones pop up.
Started with vertigo last week also.
Anyway, my hubby who was very skeptical about me having ms, is now saying......San, I think you have ms, after reading the symptoms, he realizes I have so many of them. We'll see, still have yet to be dx, if not ms, What!
Sorry, i didnt get back to soon,,,,I post something and it completely leaves my mind.
Its very frustarating, but its how it is! and yes, i was dx'ed in March of this year.
I have never known how much of this breathing is part of MS or not. Its strange that so many of us have this problem though. I also have shortness of breath, it is just very irritating and with the dizziness and fatigue, it feels as if they are all working against each other. Maybe to fix one might help the other..
Did that make sense, can't always find the right words..lol
