I feel ya, I've had the same, all the X Rays and blood tests as I couldn't breath. Have you heard about. Hyporventilation?

You have to do breathing exercises EVERY SINGLE DAY! The reason as to why I know this is cause my anxiety attacks my breathing pattern. I breathe to fast from me nose and then I start to hyperventilate which OF COURSE brings on the attacks.

I do 40 minutes of deep belly breathing per day. This calms your nervous system down. I also do 5 minutes of slow breathing EVERY HOUR. I count my breaths as well. The normal breath rate is 12 breaths per minute so I go by that. I have been doing this for a week and I see improvement.

You need to be persistent and do it every day. It takes approx. 3-6 weeks to break the bad breathing pattern but you must stick to this no matter what. There can be set backs and this is completely NORMAL!
