I feel that way a lot. Anxiety makes it worse but sometimes it really does have to do with us being extra sensitive to a stuffy nose. I get a great deal of comfort from using a neti pot. It has staved off many a panic attack. I highly recommend one. In the meantime, I'm guessing you are fine.


Symptom of anxiety are shortness of breath, restless, fear of death, lightheaded, mind working very fast just like finished running 100 meters. Can't sleep due to thinking a lots, some might be negative thoughts. Take a deep breath, tell yourself "I am alright". Try to relax your mind.
