Hey guys I haven't been on here in a lonnnng while. Well here's my thing Woke up feeling jittery

For the last few days I've been dealing with a health scare that has me breathing shallow.

And I have been mouth breathing more then usual, which I noticed my chest hurts when I exert myself and I am mouth breathing :(

Can the breathing be the issue??

I also feeling like my heart is beating a million miles per he but it's normal I guess.

Hi there!! I was wondering, can u not breathe through your nose? I suffer from nasal allergies really bad, so my nose is constantly congested. I use prescription nasal sprays and afrin to keep my sinuses open. If I am unable to breathe through my nose, it makes my anxiety way worse. I have to be able to take deep breaths through my nose and then gently and slowly exhale through my mouth. Maybe you should see a doctor about the mouth breathing because that is not normal. Obviously, if you have a cold or allergies where u can't breathe through your nose, but there are medications that can provide relief. Take care and may our heavenly Father bless and keep you safe.
