Difficulty breathing and neuropathy

Posted by @juanito, Thu, Nov 22 11:34am

Is it common to have difficulty breathing with peripheral neurology?

REPLY

Hello @juanito, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I have peripheral neuropathy but I'm not familiar with PN having associated breathing difficulties. If you are having difficulty breathing, I would recommend seeking help as soon as possible. There is a lot of information available on the various possible symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. These links might provide some information for you.

@juanito have you been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy?

@juanito I noticed in one of your other posts you mentioned a pacemaker. Do you have a pacemaker? I did find some mention of shortness of breath in a PacemakerClub.com website. Here's a link to the discussion:

I am constantly out of breath

Here's another reference – What Is Pacemaker Syndrome?

Hope this helps.

I have trouble breathing too. I'm on 3 meds for asthma but I'm still short of breath when I'm doing things I used to do without breathing hard. Is it connected to neuropathy?

Hi, @pfbacon – I am not a medical professional, but in researching the connections with asthma and neuropathy, this is the one syndrome I found that seemed to have some links between the two: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/churg-strauss-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20353760.
