Taking Xanax for just under a month. Breathing got so labored that my cardiologist did a nuclear stress test and a stent procedure. I spent last Sunday in the ER where a battery of test, blood gasses, blood work ups, heart X-ray etc were done. A CT scan found no abnormalities to my lungs and no blood clots. Yet I labor to breath with light exertion. When I am laying down for awhile my breathing is normal. Yet the Medical people, and the latest in technology says there is nothing wrong. Since I did start XANAX for some anxiety issues was the last thing I did now I am looking to see if it is causing my breathing issues.
I am not an ALS patient myself, but I lost my son's father (who was only 43 yrs. old) to ALS two years ago. He had been taking an anti-anxiety medication (not sure which one) for a few years, when he was first diagnosed. In fact, at first his doctors thought his symptoms were caused by the anti-anxiety meds he was on. At that time, it did cross my mind that the medication could actually be linked to his fate, but the thought passed. I was shocked when I found the information on this site today; and angry if this is what caused his horrible death. His young son is left to deal with the fear of his future, as we don't know if this disease was caused by a family gene. I would like to know if this medication was the cause so I could warn my son and give him some relief in knowing this disease may be preventable.
