Breathing problems


Q: Feel like I want to yawn but can't?

Symptoms:  I feel like I want to yawn but I cant.. Although if I yawn after trying harder to yawn, its not satisfying. I get that feeling again and again.. It's worse since two days.. I'm 16. I feel like I can't breath properly.. I had this difficulty earlier as well and when I met a doctor, he asked me to meet a psychologist. But my parents didn't take me to one asking me not to think about things much, just to be calm. It's the most annoying thing ever feeling that I can't yawn. I don't have asthma and all.. And most of the time I find my mouth open because I feel like i dont get enough air to breath so that I have to try harder. please help me!! It's urgent!! It's getting worse day by day. please tell me what to do with this.. What should I do to get rid of that because it's really difficult trying to yawn when you can't and when you can't breath properly. Now my throat is also paining.. Please do help me!! It really hurts..
