Does anyone experience severe shortness of breath with anxiety? This has been happening to me for about a year and a half. I feel like im suffocating and can't take a deep breath. It scared me at first - got a bunch of tests done on my heart, lungs (asthma), allergies, etc which all came back clean.
I did some research on google about shortness of breath with anxiety and seemed like some people experience it. I'm still unsure because I feel like I am short of breath when I'm NOT anxious, and sometimes not short of breath when I AM anxious.
My PCP gave me low dose xanax to try, and it seems to work a little bit, but I can't tell for sure.
Anyone else experience something similar to this? Anything you have done to help?
