Causes of shortness of breath, choking, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath with cervical osteochondrosis
low back pain can be called a disease of civilization, since no animal in nature they do not suffer. It is a sedentary job, lack of mobility in the spine during the day, leading to degenerative changes of the intervertebral cartilages of the cervical and thoracic. But if low physical activity is supplemented by injury to avoid the onset of symptoms is impossible.
And if earlier back pain and stiffness disturbed only old people, now they are characteristic for people of 20-25 years. But at this age to detect pathology can be difficult.
The Problem of timely detection of degenerative disc disease is that it has non-specific manifestations. This disease does not always begin with pain.
So, initially the patient may be concerned by such nonspecific symptoms as dizziness or feeling short of breath. Because of this, he often treats non-existent diseases of the head and lungs, oblivious to the presence of degenerative disc disease. Incorrect treatment brings a lot of negative consequences, and causes osteoarthritis to progress.
Symptoms of cervical-thoracic osteochondrosis
some of the most common symptoms of destruction of cartilage of the cervical and thoracic spine include throbbing pain in the neck radiating to the hands or heart, obstruction of the pan and tilt of the head, and dizziness caused by pressure differences. All these symptoms are explained by pinched nerves and blood vessels that feed the muscles and internal organs. Lack of oxygen causes pain and reflex muscle tension, leading to stiffness.
