Evening all just had my first smothering sensation for ages and I forgot how much I hate it. Convinced you will stop breathing soon as it feels like you can't get enough air makes you feel so uncomfortable and also scary I feel. Does anyone else get this? Why does this happen. I assume shallow breathing. Worried for about an hour I was having a heart attack!!

I have been having this AT LEAST once a day for the past year and a half now. Have you been to the doctor? If so, have they given you the all clear? If yes, don't worry!! You'll be okay! If not, I suggest going to the doctor soon!


I've had every heart test known to man. Cardiologist says I'm good for another 60 years and I have less chance of an arythmia than the normal person!
