1. I feel that air is not enter completely into the body when inhale.It means that i don’t get deep breath and,get just short breath
2. One surprising is that my abdomen is compressed when inhale and expand in exhale. It is not normal. But in lying position, it is normal like other people. This is not ok for me and not comfortable.
3. I am also a stutterer (stammer) person. Although I m stutter since childhood, it is worsen in this condition now. I am very depressed on this in my work and my life. I had read in some literature before that stuttering is relief in complete and deep breathing.

  1. hi..
    according to me, there is definitely some relation between stuttering and breathing problems. this may increase to some extent with age, but not much.
    your chest xray seems to be fine and doesnt seem to show any major pathology that will cause breathing problems for you.

    shortness of breath can be managed by breathing exercises and yoga.
    stuttering needs to be tackled by a speech therapist.
