Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
Was it sudden in onset? Was there any aggravating or triggering factor as such? Did you have a history of asthma in your childhood?
Do you have any associated cough or chest pain?
Do you develop breathlessness on walking?
I need all these details, before i can guide you further.

Patient replied :

I had asthma as a kid, and there really arent many triggering factors besides that I lift weights regularly. I had bad chest pain in the left side for a while, not as bad now, mostly lack of breath at the moment.

Thank you for the follow up.
It does not seem to be any lung pathology or anything serious.
It will be better if you can gt a Chest X RAY done and upload the reports for me to be ale to guide you.
It mostly seems like a panic attack and i think a course of Tab. Xanax for about a week will be helpful for you. You need to ask your local GP for a prescription. Kindly try the medicine and let me know if there is an improvement.

Patient replied :

Alright, thank you very much

Please let me know if Xanax is helpful.
All the very best !!
