Treatment For Lung Disorders?
Hello, my name is Jennifer, 18 years old (female) … so I have experienced breathing problems from the age of 10 years, starting at the beginning of the 10/11 year, when suddenly I couldn’t breathe. And this continues until the next 10 years, Alan, but the more it gets worse the first time it only happens to the scaling, but the breath will repeat until I urge myself not to sleep again / open my eyes. But for 10 years this did not happen serially / often. My condition rarely happens sometimes, it can be 2 years, sometimes it can be 2 months, and once it happens, I will definitely experience breathlessness that occurs repeatedly. In the past 10 years, I have never seen a doctor, only once had a heart examination. And the results are normal, I want to know if the problem is. I have to check where and what is the solution. Thank you.
