Shortness Of Breath Due To Accidentally Drinking Amniotic Water?
I have had respiratory problems since I was a child, because when my baby accidentally drank amniotic fluid. I have never checked with a doctor because it is not that bad, but sometimes I have to take frequent deep breaths to get a little relief. My throat feels slimy. Especially now that I am pregnant, the symptoms often appear, almost every time I breathe in a long breath. Once I came to the doctor, he said, my lungs are too much fluid, who knows what fluid, what does he mean wet lungs? Then what is the possibility of my illness, yes, is it really wet lungs, or asthma ..
