Hi there,

I have shortness of breath and dry mouth.


When I initially began taking Multiple Vitamins, I had one pill in the morning on an empty stomach without any problems.

But a month or so, I started experiencing shortness of breath and dry mouth.

I stopped taking it for a week and I am still experiencing these symptoms. Sometimes I REALLY have to gasp for air; I just feel like I’m not filling my lungs properly.

I went to see a doctor and checked my oxygen levels (99%), xray, bloodtest and lungs were fine. I don't cough, sneeze and no wheezing.

What am I experiencing? Allergic reaction?

Is it possible experience side effects or allergic reactions later on?

I am worried if it's going to be a permanent thing?? It’s extremely uncomfortable and frankly alarming.

Thanks,

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If all the work up is normal this shortness of breath is likely psychological dyspnea, some anxiolytics will help. All you need is reassurance and rest and supportive care.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
