I am having trouble breathing - it is not bad, but frustrating!! I feel like I can't take a deep breath, been getting a few dizzy spells in the last 2 weeks or so. What could it be? (not the first time).

I work near spray paint fumes, could it be that?

Dear Vis
You could be getting a kind of asthma - maybe it will be worth your while to ask your GP to refer you for a lungfunction test or peakflow test in his rooms. Your work may have to move you to a safer area and you may need to use preventative treatment .
