When I inhale I have to think about every breath, and they’re very short and shallow. It was hard going to sleep because I just wouldn’t take a breath but it was fine once I got to sleep. But immediately after I woke up, it wasn’t automatic anymore. Have I messed something up in there? My chest hurts a little but mostly my throat, should I see a doctor or will it go away?
