I first noticed this symptom several months ago. When laying on my back watching TV before going to sleep I would always have a once per night involuntary sharp intake of breath.
In the last few days I have noticed that I am doing it with increasing frequency during the day. I have no other symptoms other than I just feel like there is some type of inadequacy to my respiration.
I am a 50 year old female who quit smoking when I was 15 years old.
I am slightly allergic to dust, mold & pollen but not enough to take anything for it unless I get a sinus headache. I have not been sneezing lately & no coughing.
I was resent diagnosed with mild copd
I then went onto pnumonia I am still fighting it it's been going on my fourth week. I'm still on oxegen and fighting to breath since this has started I am having involuntary intake of breath it sometimes hurts I can still feel like my lungs are filling up with congestion
