I don't think folks quite understand what you mean when you can't breathe - they don't get that it is a physical impossibility, that all you can do is gasp air into your stomach and then wretch it out. It won't be too late to go to get a blood test. Took a trainee doc to persuade them to do one for me and the result was 2 weeks (thereby making it nearly 2 months since it started). Since the snow it has been worse again though because I commute by train.
