Greetings to everyone! It is my hope that we all will find solutions to our inquiries.

My question pertains to shortness of breath. I have severe pressure in my neck with numbness in shoulders, arms, hands and fingers, terrible headaches and many other symptoms. But lately I have had several severe shortness of breath spells that drove my blood pressure way up and I had to go to the emergency room for help. I am using an inhaler now and it seems to help some. Is anyone else having trouble with shortness of breath that is due to the compression of the nerves in your neck or thoracic spine?
