Tuesday I had a runny nose all day and pretty much just felt like crud. I laid on the couch about 7pm and zonked out with a pile of bulldogs on me. My wife got home around 11.30 that night and woke me up. I grabbed a quick shower, and hopped into bed. Once I laid down, I literally could not breathe. My airway was clear, nasal cavities ect, it was just like I was not getting good air. I got up and could breathe ok standing up, but once I sat down or laid down, boom. I could tell my heart rate was quite high, as well as my respiration's, so we headed to the hospital. When we got there they started poking me and prodding me, ended up giving me o2 and a pill to calm me down. They must have done 5 or 6 tests on me, x rays, blood work, EKG test, ect. At about 5.30 am they sent me home with no reason as to what had happened. I turned 40 about 2 weeks ago, I guess this is a sign that I am getting old...

Anyway, I feel ok as of now, but boy was that a scare.

Yikes. That had to be scary. Hope nothing more comes of it.
Age does kind of sneak up on a guy.

Any chance it was anxiety? Sometimes stress gets us an we don't even know it's happening.

Just glad they didn't find anything!

The doctor that saw me knew that I was self employed. He did ask me abut stress, but did not think that was the issue. I have had stress from time to time, but nothing lately. I am a pretty mellow roll with the punches kind of guy.

I have a follow up appointment with my regular doctor, hopefully they will find something. I have started noticing little things the past few days now that are not normal. Shortness of breath here and there when doing little things.

Thanks for all the thoughts about me, I appreciate it!

Thanks to everybody that has taken the time to send me a PM or reply to this post. I really appreciate it.

I have an appointment today at 11am. Hopefully the docs will figure out what is going on and hopefully it is nothing too bad, LOL. I have to sub for a good friend tonight at ski patrol, hopefully I am out of the docs office in time for that, LOL

Scary things, these unknown medical problems! Hope they can find the "probable cause" just to ease your mind! Regular check ups every year have been a big help for me. There has never been anything really bad that has come up, but the peace of mind you get from it makes it worth it! Good luck with it Ryan!!

Ryan , I Also have a business . Also considered myself very easy going , no cares . BUT I turned 40 and a thing called anxiety showed up . Panic attacks they are called . Hard core chest pain tight breathing elevated heart rate and hearing every beat ,etc etc etc .Everyone gets different symptoms .I am very open about it , there are ways to deal with it . There are worse things to have than anxiety . Everyone has it , its just to what degree it effects you .If I can help by sharing my experience that's what I do . all the best .

Thanks guys, I cannot express how thankful I am to have a good group of friends in my life. I just called the doc and I am now heading in a little early due to a cancellation. I will update you guys as soon as I can.

Hoping for good news Ryan!!!!
As I found out with Melissa on what was just an ordinary Monday morning, this medical stuff can be a great stress in itself!

good luck Ryan, hope its not something serious. too often are issues chalked up to be stress/anxiety... i hope they are able to find the actual cause.
