I suddenly feel extreme shortness of breath, dizziness, vertigo,sharp heaviness in skull, neck, anxiety and panic?

Hi Dr…I don’t have asthma..but whenever I drink a very cold/chilled beverage or even sit in air conditioner, I suddenly feel extreme shortness of breath, dizziness, vertigo,sharp heaviness in skull, neck, anxiety and panic. Now, this continues for many hours and feels like i will surely pass out or even die. I have seen doctors for heart valves issues but he said its fine. I have tried inhalers and beta-blockers, EFT tapping, drink hot liquids etc but there is no benefit. I once had attack in plane and it was horrible. My lungs test was absolutely fine. I am very puzzled. Im around 30 yr old man with no major illness. If possible, could you please suggest something. thanks.

Hi..
Your symptoms are pointing more towards problems with lungs only and possibly Asthma like symptoms only..
Many a times cold drinks or cold air an cause bronchospasms that can cause similar symptoms..
You should consult a Pulmonologist and get investigations like Chest x ray, Spirometry and lung function tests done..

Hope this helps..
