Re: Deep breath problems

I know exactly what you are going through.It's part of the anxiety and happens to me sometimes.In times of stress it can be worse.
I have yet to find anything which completely takes it away (other then Xanax) but there are a few things that help.

Sometimes it helps to try to burp and get rid of any extra air that may be in your stomach.
Sometimes it helps if you try to yawn.
Stretch your body out so you can get more air into your lungs.
Lay down if you can to relax for a moment.
Take a drink of water.

Avoid caffeine,and avoid alcohol.(caffeine can really make it worse)
