For the last few days its very digficult for me to take a deep breath, or to feel like I have enough air going into my lungs. I'll try to breathe deep and it's like I just can't reach that point. I feel like I'm breathing fine but I could be taking in more air. When I'm laying in bed I can take breaths better if I'm sitting up. It's really aggravating and hard not to notice. It's been staying this way since yesterday and today, other times it was just an off and on type of thing. Another thing I noticed was if I gently press on my chest I feel a slight pain, maybe like pressure, or sensitivity. I don't know what to do about this, and it's really scaring me. I can't imagine having something wrong with me.

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Difficulty taking a breath could be multifactorial. It could be mere anxiety or an infection of pulmonary tract. When a person is unable to take a deep breath then gallbladder issues like gallstones or pancreatitis may be suspected.

Get evaluated and lt them sort out the differentials for the symptoms you have.

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 can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
