Is there anything that can help with breathing/chest pain w/Fibromylagia

Published: April 17, 2013

Dr. T, my question is about severe chest pain and asthma like symptoms. I have severe Fibromyalgia (nerve pain all over) and have been completely bed ridden for 5 month. I recently started on your protocol (3 weeks ago). One huge problem that I have is trouble breathing and severe chest pain (especially after walking). My doctor prescribed me Symbicort, but it is not working. Are there any additional things you could suggest that helps with breathing/chest pain? (I will likely try to schedule a consultation with you, unfortunately at this time I can barely breathe or talk).


This would be hard to address without knowing a detailed history--beyond what can be done on a web Q&A. Need to see if heart disease was ruled out, the results of breathing tests, etc
