Anxious about breathing

Have tried to remove the fear of not breathing with different wayss it was thought Pulmonary Rehabilitation would help me with my anxiety after speaking with a doctor a new way of thinking will be tried. Will start CBT about understanding problems so that talking will help me learn things to do when feeling anxiety this is worth trying for some people the nurse told me as I was leaving

Pulmonary rehab has helped my father greatly, he is currently in the middle of a course. This week they did a relaxation technique which helped greatly and I have read that accupuncture is supposed to help.


Hi, My husband gets very anxious but the Pulmonary Rehab really did help him - so I hope that it can do for you. Good luck with the CBT it sounds positive. Take care TAD x
