So I ended up in the ER tonight (6-28-19), and they did a chest xray and said everything was clear. They gave me a steroid shot. I dont like needle but… what are the side effects of steroid shots. Also does anyone have any idea how to make your chest feel unheavy?

When anxiety is present, it is usually helpful to BREATHE—deep breath in, then with pursed lips slowly blow out. Mother had CHF and many times she would get short of breath and I taught her to do this breathing and it always helped, and now I have COPD and asthma and when I feel like there is not enough air, I do this breathing exercise. Maybe 6 times will do the trick for you. Hope this helps your chest feel lighter.. Steroid shots are not too bad, as I have had them to help with inflammation of the lungs, and they sometimes give one good energy. Get better SOON!
